Dzvukamanja’s Departure From Orlando Pirates 

Terrence Dzvukamanja’s departure from Orlando Pirates took place under controversial circumstances during the off-season.

The club subsequently brought back Zakhele Lepasa from SuperSport United in an attempt to fill the void left by Dzvukamanja.

Initially, Lepasa made a sensational start by scoring 10 goals in his first eight matches across all competitions, raising hopes among the Pirates faithful.

The Recent Goal Drought

However, Pirates has recently struggled to find the back of the net, going scoreless in their last three matches in all competitions.

Tso Vilakazi’s Critique

Vilakazi, a prominent figure in the history of Pirates, has criticized the club’s decision to let Dzvukamanja go, asserting that it was a poor decision.

He argues that Dzvukamanja’s contributions last season were invaluable, particularly his ability to score crucial goals, such as the winner in the Nedbank Cup final against Sekhukhune United.

Playing Style and Dzvukamanja’s Role

He also points out that Pirates’ playing style relies heavily on width and crosses, which suited Dzvukamanja’s abilities.

Dzvukamanja was known for being proficient with his head and had a knack for converting chances in the air.
