Pirates make shock Terrence Dzvukamanja decision

Orlando Pirates have made a decision on Terrence Dzvukamanja’s future following speculation about his departure.

The Soweto giants announced the shocking decision on Monday via a statement on their website. They confirmed that Dzvukamanja is heading towards the exit door at the club.

The Zimbabwean striker’s deal expired at the end of June and Pirates opted against exercising the one-option on his contract.

“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,” said Pirates in a statement.

“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.

Last season, the striker played 19 games across all competitions for the Sea Robbers, managed to score eight goals, and weighed in with two assists in the process.

Overall, Dzvukamanja featured in 76 matches during his tenure with Pirates. He scored 15 goals and contributed eight assists since joining the club in September 2020 from Bidvest Wits.

The talented forward also turned out for Ngezi Platinum on his home soil, Zimbabwe.

Dzvukamanja will be expected to add the much-needed experience to SuperSport’s striking force as Matsatsantsa will also be participating in the CAF Inter-club competition.

So far, SuperSport has signed Phathutshedzo Nange from Kaizer Chiefs. The side also managed to keep Siphesihle Ndlovu on a permanent deal from Pirates.
