Mntambo, who joined Pirates in 2018 having had spells at Jomo Cosmos and Chippa United, went on to register 71 appearances for the Buccaneers in all competitions, scoring 8 times and recording 6 assists.

“The 33-year-old will be missed in the Bucs changeroom for the positive spirit that he bought in the squad,” read a statement on the club’s website.

“Although he leaves us as a player today, there is no doubt that he will return to his boyhood club one day to serve in a different capacity.”

Meanwhile, Pirates also confirmed the departure of Nyauza following a meeting between both parties on Wednesday.

The 32-year-old defender has been at the heart of the Bucs defence since joining in 2013.

Nyauza was the second most experienced player at pirates after skipper Happy Jele.

He made a total of 192 appearances during his time, scoring 7 goals and providing 4 assists.

“The Club would like to thank both Mntambo and Nyauza for their contribution and professionalism they displayed during their time with us, and we wish them both all the best for the future.”
