Pirates’ Interest In Burundian International Confirmed

Orlando Pirates’ interest in a Chippa United international defender has been confirmed.

As reported in the latest edition of Soccer Laduma, edition 1157, Pirates have set their sights on Frederic Nsabiyumva, with a view of adding him to the squad, as part of their search for players to strengthen coach Josef Zinnbauer’s team.

The Burundian defender has confirmed to the Siya crew that talks have taken place between the Buccaneers and Chilli Boys regarding his services. 

“Yeah, there was interest and talk of me going to Pirates, but I don’t think that is still on,” confirmed the Burundian.

The 24-year-old centre-back, however, further confirmed his commitment to his current employers in Port Elizabeth.

“I’m here by Chippa and that’s the only story I have for you,” while also adding, “It (the discussion) was between the (two) clubs. I think that was two weeks ago. I don’t know how far that is, but what I know is that I am a Chippa player, and I am currently focused on where I am.”

The defender missed out on the action in the most recent match, as he was an unused substitute in coach Norman Mapeza’s team against Bloemfontein Celtic at the weekend.

Nsabiyumva will hope to have worked his way back into the Zimbabwean mentor’s starting line-up for the match against Pirates next Saturday, with the hope to further impress his suitors from the Soweto giants.
