‘That was my lowest point at Pirates’: Terrence Dzvukamanja

SuperSport United striker Terrence Dzvukamanja has opened up on his lowest point during his stint at Orlando Pirates.

Dzvukamanja unexpectedly left Pirates ahead of the 2022/24 DStv Premiership season to join SuperSport.

The left-footed forward reportedly requested to leave the Soweto giants because he wanted to return home to Zimbabwe to be close to his family. However, he resurfaced at Matsatsantsa.

The 29-year-old attacker spent three seasons with Pirates after signing from Bidvest Wits in the 2020/21 campaign. Wits sold its top-flight status to Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila [TTM] in 2020 on the brink of their centenary celebration.

During his time at Pirates, Dzvukamanja featured in 76 games across all competitions, scoring 12 goals and providing three assists.

His best season in the colours of the Buccaneers was in the previous campaign, where he scored seven goals in all competitions. Dzvukamanja, who had a love-hate relationship with the Bucs faithful, scored the winner in the 2023 Nedbank as Pirates beat Sekhukhune United in the final.

With the Zimbabwean international currently playing his football at Matsatsantsa, he says his lowest point was when he scored two goals in the 2020/21 season at Pirates.

“As a striker, all you want to do is score goals and help the team win football matches,” Dzvukamanja said in an interview with FARPost.

“And for me, at some point, I was not scoring goals at Pirates, and sometimes I spent most of the time injured. I remember there was a season I scored, I think, two goals the whole season at Pirates, and that was my lowest point. Scoring goals was not feeling good for me.”

Meanwhile, the former Ngezi Platinum star has had a slow start to life at SuperSport after scoring four goals in 26 matches.

Dzvukamanja will be looking to end the season on a high and increase his goal tally for the Tshwane-based outfit in the last few games.
