'I Doubt He Will Make It At Pirates... '

Despite joining Orlando Pirates as a highly-recommended attacker after impressing with his performances back home in Zambia, Austin Muwowo has struggled in his first season in the Absa Premiership, and according to an experienced coach, the midfielder could find it difficult to make it at the star-studded Buccaneers. 

Muwowo, 23, has made only two substitute appearances in all competitions for Pirates this season, and indications are that he could be sent on loan at the end of the season.

Last season, Muwowo was the best player in Zambia’s top-flight league, having starred for Forest Rangers while on loan from Nkana FC, when he was signed by the Soweto giants in July last year.

Veteran Zambian coach Jacob Sakala, who is based in South Africa and with more than 20 years of coaching experience, has weighed in on Muwowo’s chances at the Buccaneers.

“Muwowo – the midfielder – I doubt he will make it (at Pirates). I will tell you the truth, I have seen Muwowo play for Forest (Rangers)… not the best of players (in my opinion),” Sakala told the Siya crew.

Muwowo ended last season as the top goalscorer in Zambia and has represented his national team in COSAFA.

Former Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic rated him highly, as well as his then assistant Rulani Mokwena, who is now the head coach of Chippa United.
