THE BREAKDOWN: Why Pirates Must Sign Wome

Orlando Pirates could be securing on-loan attacking midfielder, Dove Wome’s services on a permanent basis and today we analyse the Togo international’s performances for the Buccaneers to determine whether a potential deal would be a good move for the club.

Morrison Challenging Bucs Fans To Weigh His Season

Wome joined the Soweto giants on a temporary deal from SuperSport United in January for the second half of the 2016/17 season and has scored three goals in 12 appearances. Having played through the middle and down both flanks, Wome’s versatility has been an asset to Kjell Jonevret and only Tendai Ndoro has scored more goals for Pirates this season.

Over and above this, Wome averages more shots per game (3.28) than any other player in Pirates squad, with 72% of his shots coming from inside the box. Furthermore, a shot accuracy of 48% and a conversion rate of 12% shows that he has what it takes to be a real attacking threat and has proven this in a difficult season for The Sea Robbers.


However, it is not just his proficiency in front of goal that has been an asset to his club in his short spell so far, with the 25-year-old making 34.5 passes per game at an accuracy rate of 79.1%, a great figure considering the number of his passes that are made in the final third (30%). Wome also draws 1.05 fouls per game, which allows his team to pose a threat from set plays on a frequent basis.

Four Buccaneers Walk Nedbank Suspension Tightrope

One of the frequently stated arguments for the shortcomings of this underachieving Pirates team has been that they are too reliant on Tendai Ndoro, who scored 41.3% of their goals in the league in the 2016/17 Absa Premiership season.

Wome, however, has hit the ground running in his short time with the team and, with a potential full preseason with a full season ahead, should he be snapped up permanently, there’s no telling how much of an attacking threat he could be for the Parktown-based club, if he’s given the opportunity.

Do you think Pirates should try to sign Dove Wome on a permanent basis?
