Bucs’ Ugandan Target Misses Crucial CAF Match, PSL Deal On The Cards?

Ugandan Striker Misses His Team’s Match To Be With Orlando Pirates

By Soccer Laduma - Jul 30, 2018 03:39 PM

An Orlando Pirates target from Uganda could be nearing a move to the PSL after he missed his team’s important CAF Champions League match amid reports linking him with the Soweto giants.

The Buccaneers have been linked with Ugandan striker, Mohamed Shaban who is currently on the books of Kampala City Capital Authority (KCCA) FC in his country.

The 20-year-old was a notable absentee from KCCA’s line-up in their Champions League match against Tunisia’s Esperance on the weekend.

The Ugandan side lost 1-0 against the Tunisian giants, with Shaban not present in coach Mike Mutebi's line-up at the Mandela National Stadium on Saturday.

According to reports from Uganda, Shaban missed the match because he travelled to South Africa to attend a trial with Pirates.

However, the coach refused to blame the team’s loss on the young striker’s absence.

“We did not miss Shaban at all because when he has been around how many goals has he scored?” Mutebi reportedly said to Ugandan media after the match. 

According to kwese.espn.com, Shaban is nearing a move to the PSL, with Bucs who are under former Uganda senior national team coach, Milutin Sredojevic believed to be his potential suitors.   

“Mike Mutebi has refused to blame (the) wonder kid striker Mohamed Shaban after he missed KCCA FC's CAF Champions League defeat by Esperance due to his impending move to Orlando Pirates,” stated kwese.espn.com in part.

“KCCA were muted without wonder kid striker Shaban as he nears a switch to PSL, but Mutebi doesn't believe that his absence was decisive,” reported the website.

Bucs recently parted ways with Issar Sarr and Bernard Morrison who both occupied foreign spots in last season’s squad.

While the Buccaneers are believed to be considering adding Brazilian defender, Caio Marcelo to the squad after the 20-year-old impressed the technical team with his performances during his trial with the team, reports in Uganda are linking the Soweto giants with Shaban.

@Nhlpato as long as is Micho who is busy landing players to bucs I had nothing to complain until I see him on the field of play how good/bad he is. Who knows if not Micho himself up to so far.
