Former Pirates Star To Replace R17m Ahly-Bound Star?

After the Siya crew reported that Simba SC attacker Luis Miquissone agreed to join Pitso Mosimane’s Al Ahly, indications are that a former Pirates player has been identified as his replacement.

Last week the crew reported that Jean Marc Makusu had been offered to Marumo Gallants following his exit from Orlando Pirates where he spent the second half of the 2020/21 season on loan from Congolese giants AS Vita Club.

But, the crew has since been informed that the 29-year-old’s future could well lay outside of Mzansi with Simba SC believed to be keen on his services.

Makusu, who failed to live up to expectations at Pirates despite arriving with much fanfare having scored over 30 goals for Vita in 2018, has been identified as a direct replacement for Miquissone, who is subject of a €1m (±R17m) offer from Pitso Mosimane’s Al Ahly.

According to the source, Makusu is keen on reigniting his promising career that came to an abrupt halt when he joined Pirates in October last year.

The Congolese striker made just eight appearances for coach Josef Zinnbauer’s side, scoring just one goal in that time and often played second fiddle to Tshegofatso Mabasa, Zakhele Lepasa and Gabadinho Mhango.

Indications are that that Makusu could go out on yet another loan spell, given that he has a contract with Vita that runs until June 2022, although he does not appear to be in the club’s immediate plans.
