Sangweni, who spoke to the media on the sidelines of the Cosafa Cup, of which he is an ambassador, in Durban, said he was sorry to see his former club repeating the same mistake over the past years.
“What is happening at Pirates pains me deeply.
“This thing of chopping and changing of players every season makes it hard for the team to create consistency. Because you need to have a team you can build on by adding a few players here and there.
“Last season I had a bit of hope that now they finally have a team that can achieve something, but they have started chopping again,” he said.
Samgweni, who joined Bucs from Golden Arrows in 2011, enjoyed quite a successful career as he was part of the team that won a treble in his first season and also reached two continental club competitions finals.
