SuperSport Want Pirates Striker

SuperSport United are after Orlando Pirates striker Terrence Dzvukamanja, iDiski Times has been informed.

It is not clear whether they will sign the Zimbabwe international now or wait until the end of the season from Pirates.

But Pirates might be keen to get him off their books now to get some money out of him rather than to lose him for free, as his contract will expire in June.

Dzvukamanja joined Pirates from Gavin Hunt’s Bidvest Wits ahead of the 2020/21 season. He instantly hit the floor running, scoring a header as Pirates beat Cape Town City in the MTN8 quarter-finals, with the Soweto giants eventually going all the way to win the competition.  

However, at the moment, the 28-year-old is far behind in Pirates’ striking packing order and things have been made worse by the arrival of Cameroonian striker Souaibou Marou.

Even before that, Dzvukamanja was seeing little action at the Sea Robbers, as the Soweto giants have multiple centre-forwards to choose, including Evidence Makgopa, who only returned from injury recently, Zakhele Lepasa, Ndumiso Mabena, Bienvenu Eva Nga and Kermit Erasmus.

Dzvukamanja recently scored for Pirates, coming on in the second half as they beat Golden Arrows 3-1 two weeks ago.

As he entered the fray then, he was booed off by Pirates fans at Orlando Stadium when he replaced Dion Hotto, but flung his head to meet Monnapule Saleng’s cross to fire the second goal.  

Overall, he has scored just 10 goals in 60 matches in all competitions since he arrived at Orlando Stadium.

Dzvukamanja, if he joins SuperSport, will be reunited with former coach Hunt, who signed him ahead of the 2018/19 season.

Pirates recently loaned out Kwame Peprah to Maritzburg United because he was also struggling for game-time in the side due to the plethora of options up top.
