Mike Makaab speaks on Pirates striker Radiopane’s future after CT Spurs’ demise

Renowned football agent Mike Makaab has spoken about the future of Orlando Pirates striker Boitumelo Radiopane, who is on loan at the recently relegated Cape Town Spurs.

With CT Spurs’ relegation confirmed at the weekend, Saturday, the future of loaned striker Boitumelo Radiopane is up in the air. Questions swirl around the promising forward’s next move.

Radiopane has spent two loan spells at CT Spurs after joining the club at the start of the 2022/23 season in the Motsepe Foundation Championship.

The 22-year-old attacker was part of the CT Spurs team that gained promotion to the DStv Premiership last season via the PSL promotional/relegation playoffs

After gaining promotion to the SA’s top-flight for the 2023/24 campaign, Radiopane spent another loan stint with the Urban Warriors. However, his second loan spell has been hindered by injuries. He has only made eight appearances across all competitions at CT Spurs this season, and he’s yet to open his scoring account with two games remaining.

The highly-rated forward arrived at CT Spurs with a big goal-scoring pedigree after scoring 24 goals from the Pirates DStv Diski Challenge [DDC] side before being promoted to the first team.


Radiopane’s agent, Mike Makaab, has revealed that the youngster will return to his parent club at the end of the season following CT Spurs’ relegation.

“Boitumelo Radiopane will return to Orlando Pirates at the end of the season when his loan expires at Cape Town Spurs,” Makaab told FARPost.

The Sebokeng-born forward will be looking to push Tshegofatso Mabasa, Zakhele Lepasa, and Evidence Makgopa for a place in the starting lineup, with the Kermit Erasmus and Souaibou Marou facing uncertain futures.

Meanwhile, Spurs’ relegation came after Richards Bay FC claimed crucial three points against Orlando Pirates.

The Natal Rich Boyz, who are in 15th place on the log standings, have moved to 27 points, making it impossible for 16th-placed CT Spurs to overtake them with two matches left before the league wraps up.

CT Spurs, previously known as Ajax Cape Town, have collected only 19 points after winning five games, drawing four, and losing 19 times.
