It is a privilege to join Pirates – Hotto


Namibian international and Orlando Pirates’ new winger Deon Hotto says it is a ‘privilege’ to sign for the Soweto giants.

Hotto joined the Buccaneers on Monday from the now-defunct Bidvest Wits along with Bafana Bafana captain Thulani Hlatshwayo.

The duration of Hotto’s contract was not revealed.

“I couldn’t be prouder and feel more privileged to join Orlando Pirates and make my dreams come true,” said Hotto.

In a statement released by Pirates, Hotto has been described as “strong, fast and skilful.”

The 29-year-old has a proven pedigree both at club and international level.

In the last two seasons in the colours of Wits, Hotto scored 15 goals and produced 21 assists. “I can’t wait to wear the Black and White. Buccaneers! My new home.

“Thank you very much to everyone that has played a role in my career! Today a lifelong dream that started in Swakopmund, Namibia has come true,” concluded Hotto.

The former Bloemfontein Celtic and Golden Arrows man has played over 150 games in South Africa’s top-flight with 39 assists and 20 goals to his name.

Pirates are making reinforcements to their squad in order to challenge for the Premiership title as well as close the gap between themselves and rivals Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs.
