YouTube sensation Tshepo ‘Skhwama Samatariyana’ Matete is reportedly tracked by Bucs, and he’s officially playing for NFD club Baroka F.C currently.

Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates legend Helman Mkhalele has his reservations about the player.

“That will be too quick because they saw him play some games on YouTube,” Mkhalele told

“I wouldn’t say much about it because that would be a high-risk that Orlando Pirates would be taking.

“Each and every player deserves an opportunity to play for these big teams.”

Now, Mkhalele lists the reasons why Pirates shouldn’t sign him.

“We haven’t seen the boy prove himself in the NFD, which is point number one.

“Point number two; he hasn’t played regularly in that NFD team with Baroka, so that would be a high-risk,” he added to Goal.
