Collins “Tshireletso” Makgaka hails from the quaint town Marble Hall in Mpumalanga. The Orlando Pirates supporter started his amateur football career in 2007 with Try-Again FC. It was until 2014 that the young midfielder was spotted during his performance in a friendly against Baroka FC while playing for FC Kodi White Doves. Makgaka had his first professional debut in the NFD against Moroka Swallows before signing with the Buccaneers in 2020.
The ambitious midfielder hopes to inspire young footballers through his performance and accomplishments. He aims to bring success and silverware to Orlando Pirates to show kids that if they dream big and work hard, they can achieve anything they want to.
When he isn’t supporting his teammates on the pitch, off the pitch the Teko Modise fan spends his time supporting his local community.
