Siya sources have revealed that Bucs have reversed their decision to part ways with the star, with Monare now named as a key player in new coach Jose Riveiro’s squad for the 2022/23 season.

According to insiders, the Buccaneers appear ready to offer the player a new contract, with indications that the midfielder could indeed be part of the Spanish coach’s squad for the new campaign.

Monare, 32, is expected to join his teammates in training as the players will be put through their paces by the Spaniard and his technical team in the coming weeks during pre-season preparations.

The former Jomo Cosmos player made 15 DStv Premiership appearances under Mandla Ncikazi and Fadlu Davids last season and was instrumental in the team’s impressive CAF Confederation Cup campaign.
