@ORLANDO_PIRATES-Coetzee keen to join Mobara at Pirates

Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town and Bafana Bafana defender Rivaldo Coetzee is believed to be keen on joining his "brother" Abbubaker Mobara at Orlando Pirates.

The 20-year-old defender has been subjected to numerous bids from European teams as well as the biggest teams in the PSL since breaking through into the Urban Warriors' first-team.

Coetzee is widely regarded as South Africa's best defender and is a regular for both Ajax and the national team.

A source has disclosed to Sport24 that Coetzee would be open to the possibility of joining his "brother" and former central-defensive partner, Mobara at Pirates.

The two Cape Town based players forged a close bond while at Ikamva with both also representing South Africa's U23 side at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

"I think it's time now, but I don't want to think too much about it," Coetzee told KickOff.

"For me now is just to focus on Ajax, and then we'll see.

"My next step wouldn't be about the money - if they offer me less money in Europe but more in South Africa, I'd still go to Europe.

"I'd get better as a player and get proper development in Europe as I'm still young, so that counts in my favour. My priority is Europe, but if nothing happens, I'd consider elsewhere in the PSL."
