Orlando Pirates Farewell Message:
“Today, we bid farewell to Ben Motshwai. Ben’s journey with us has come to an end as he embarks on a new chapter.
“In the world of football, where finesse and technique often take centre stage, there emerges an occasional warrior whose grit, determination, and bulldog approach define their legacy more than any flashy skill.
“Ben Motshwari is one of those players who embodies the spirit of a true football gladiator. Much like the legendary Gennaro Gattuso, Motshwari’s approach to the game was defined by heart and tenacity. Every time he stepped onto the pitch, he gave his all for that Orlando Pirates jersey.
“With over 130 appearances for the club, the 32-year-old has left his mark.
“Motshwari’s journey with us has been marked by highs and lows, but through it all, his commitment to the team has never wavered.
“On behalf of the Orlando Pirates family, we want to express our deepest gratitude to Motshwari for his unwavering commitment and dedication. Thank You, Ben!”
