Dzvukamanja in shock transfer

WARRIORS forward Terrence Dzvukamanja

WARRIORS forward Terrence Dzvukamanja has parted ways with Orlando Pirates in a shock move to SuperSport United.

Orlando Pirates were willing to renew his contract, but he decided against it.

Pirates will be competing in the Caf Champions League after finishing the 2022/23 season on second position.

However, the former Ngezi Platinum marksman chose the Pretoria-based side, SuperSport United who will be taking part in the Confederations Cup.

Orlando Pirates, expressed shock over Dzvukamanja’s decision to leave them.

“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,” Orlando Pirates said in a statement.

“After consideration, the club offered to pay his salary while 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 among 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.

“(Following) this new development, the club will release Dzvukamanja to SuperSport United.”

Last season, Dzvukamanja turned out to be one of the club’s best players after contributing eight goals in all competitions.

This was despite starting the season as an unwanted player and was almost offloaded for failing to score.

At SuperSport, he will link up with former Caps United leftback Ronald Pfumbidzai, who will be playing his first season for the club.
