After a sensational outing in the Caf Confederation Cup against Royal Leopards at Mbombela Stadium on Sunday, Orlando Pirates fans have jokingly questioned how Lionel Messi beat Bandile Shandu to the Ballon d’Or award.
Bandu, who scored a brace against Al-Ittihad in the previous game, netted the second as the Sea Robbers resurrected themselves from 2-0 down to record a big 2-6 win against the eSwatini champions.
In addition to Shandu’s strike, an own goal from Machawe Dlamini and the other four from Kabelo Dlamini, Kwame Peprah, Happy Jele, and Terrence Dzvukamanja ensured the Bucs registered their second win in Group B.

One fan demanded to know how Lionel Messi had ‘robbed’ Shandu of the Ballon d’Or.
I’ll never understand how Messi robbed Bandile Shandu of his Ballon d’Or?! 😅😅🙆🏾‍♂️🙆🏾‍♂️#CAFCC
Others were slightly less effusive in their praise but recognised just how good a player Shandu has developed into.
Bandile Shandu is a quality modern fullback and can directly influence games with goals and assists. Real recognise Real🎩

Bandile shandu =Joao Cancelo

Bandile Shandu 💪is going to be @orlandopirates player of the Season whether our “Household Enemies of Progress” like it or Not.
They should have called him beke le beke😭🙌 Man Scores Week in Week out.
⚽🙏🙌🔥🔥👌🔥⚽⚽🔥🔥👌#OnceAlways #OrlandoPirates

Bandile Shandu is always on score sheet. You can hate him but he is doing important job.

Bandile Shandu is well developed, Middendorp has drilled that boy, credit to him for moving him to RB before joining pirates
While others think his goal output should see him converted into a striker.
Josef Zinnbauer would’ve long converted Bandile Shandu🤭🤭🤭

Yerrr Bandile Shandu should just become a striker

Bandile Shandu has scored more goals than some of @orlandopirates previous “best” attackers. Mind you he is a defender.

It’s sad that Bandile Shandu is a RB but scores and plays better than our forwards😭

What are your thoughts? Ballon d’Or contender? Right back in the wrong position? Can his goal-scoring exploits be maintained? Let us know in the comments.
