Official: Pirates Make Shock Dzvukamanja Announcement

Orlando Pirates have released a statement, confirming Terrence Dzvukamanja will join SuperSport United.

Dzvukamanja, 29, had developed into Pirates main striker under Jose Riveiro after struggling in the first half of the 2022/23 campaign, netting eight goals in all competitions, including the winner in the Nedbank Cup final.

However, he will now leave the club under a cloud after Pirates released a strange statement headlined “Orlando Pirates Surprised by Supersport United Approach For Dzvukamanja’s Services”, which ends with a confirmation that the “club will release Dzvukamanja to Supersport United”.

Below is Pirates statement in full:

Terrence Dzvukamanja, approached the Club pleading to be released to play in Zimbabwe to be close to home in order to address pressing family matters. 

After consideration, the Club offered to pay his salary whilst sorting out his personal issues at home. The Club acceded to this on compassionate grounds. 

As part of the Club’s commitment to players’ welfare, Orlando Pirates makes an effort to, where possible, meet the players’ requests in circumstances that help amongst other things, their mental wellbeing. 

The Club was therefore surprised by an approach from SuperSport United for the player’s services since the Club had made plans to include the player in their CAF Champions League squad. 

With this new development, the Club will release Dzvukamanja to SuperSport United.
