Has Gabuza been replaced already?

Thamsanqa Gabuza's contract is still not being renewed and even Pirates are now seemingly keeping quiet as they are probably weighing up their options.

The offer has been on the table for a very long time, but Gabuza decided to take his time and probably because he was still enjoying his best form and looking for a much better offer. Even though Gabuza was a regular scorer in CAF competitions,  his form in domestic competitions was never convincing.

Pirates supporters were always cheering for ‘Gandaganda’ to be dropped, because they felt he was not doing his job as a striker. Eventually he was dropped by the coach after only scoring two goals in all domestic competitions despite being the team's main striker. At the same time, while Gabuza has been dropped and still worries about his contract, Tendai Ndoro has been given a chance to lead the striking force and he has not disappointed.

Ndoro has made immediate impact, scoring goals from all angles and even the midfielders are now scoring. The most important thing is that since Ndoro started playing regularly, the fortunes of the team have also changed. The team's league position has improved dramatically and they are currently in the last eight of the Nedbank cup with Ndoro a joint top goal scorer in the competition so far.

Does Gabuza still have a role at Pirates? Or Pirates have already found his replacement in Ndoro?
