Seema extends stay at Pirates

MASERU — Lesotho captain Lehlohonolo Seema has signed a three-year contract extension with South African football giants Orlando Pirates.

The influential defender signed the new deal a fortnight ago.

Seema, 29, joined Pirates in 2006 and his contract was expiring at the end of this month.

Pirates coach Ruud Krol has signalled intentions to trim his bloated squad.

“I am really happy that I will still be a Bucs player,” Seema was quoted as saying by the KickOff.com website.

“I have signed a new contract that will keep me at the club for at least three more years. Once a Pirate, always a Pirate.”

Orlando Pirates general manager Floyd Mbele confirmed the contractual issue had been settled.

“We’ve reached an agreement with him (Seema),” Mbele told the Lesotho Times last week.

“We signed a three-year contract with him last week.”

Seema first showed up in South African football in 1998 when he joined Bloemfontein Celtics.

He has 55 national caps.
