Pirates’ Forgotten Man Finds A New Home

After parting ways with Orlando Pirates, the Siya crew can confirm that Congolese journeyman Jean- Marc Makusu has found a new team.

The DR Congo attacker spent eight months on the books of the Buccaneers. His stats of over 30 goals in 2018 made for impressive reading, which led fans -and the club- to believe that they have found a gem.

The joy was short-lived though with the lanky star finding it hard to break into coach Josef Zinnbauer’s side – even when the club’s preferred strikers were injured.

In total, the 29-year-old made eight appearances for Pirates, scoring one goal.

Despite having an option of making his loan move a permanent one, the Buccaneers opted against retaining Makusu and he officially parted ways with the club when his deal expired on 30 June.

Now, as he looks to put his nightmarish spell with the Soweto giants behind him, Makusu has penned a deal with Daring Club Motema Pembe in his native Congo.

It is believed to be a loan deal from his parent club AS Vita, where he still has a contract that runs until June 2022. Makusu was also keen on staying in Mzansi as reported by the Siya crew.

The attacker has already started training with his new teammates and will be hoping to hit the ground running in the Linafoot League.
