Orlando Pirates star drops Sundowns BOMBSHELL!

Orlando Pirates new signing Kermit Erasmus has opened up about the circumstances surrounding his abrupt Mamelodi Sundowns departure.

Erasmus re-joined the Buccaneers at the beginning of the season after spending two years at the Brazilians.

According to Erasmus, nobody at Mamelodi Sundowns told him he’s ‘surplus’ to requirements and his jersey (number 11) was given away to Marcelo Allende without his knowledge.

“I had never thought I’d find myself in that situation I was in. Not being able to play and not being told I was not going to be part of the team.” the Orlando Pirates striker told SAfm as quoted by Citizen.

“I am disappointed in how it ended with Sundowns but there were things that I had no control over. So, I do not mean to be disrespectful but I prefer to focus on the things that I have control over and move on from that.

“It’s football. It is business and I had to see it in that perspective as well and not put my ego or my emotions into it and just move on from there.

“I never got any explanation from the coaches and that is the most disappointing part. But like I said, it is business, it is football. They have to focus on the team as a whole and not on individuals.”

In other news, Bienvenu Eva Nga has been linked with an exit at Orlando Pirates just five months after joining the club.

The Cameroonian striker has made just six starts for the Buccaneers since joining the club at the beginning of the season.

Eva Nga has scored just once for the club and it seems unlikely that he’ll add to that number anytime soon!

According to reports, the striker who’s valued at a whopping R8 million looks set to leave the club in January!

“Chippa United are said to be negotiating with Orlando Pirates for the services of striker Bienvenu Eva Nga in the January transfer in order to bolster their squad.” a Citizen report read.

“There is a huge possibility that he is going back to Chippa, they are really serious.”
