Due to his need for playing time, a struggling Orlando Pirates player may decide to leave the Soweto giants during the current transfer window.
Since joining Pirates, the Cameroonian player has struggled to get game time and is anticipated to be shipped out.
The 23-year-old participated in two Caf Champions League games for the Buccaneers, against Jwaneng Galaxy and Djabal FC.
The Orlando Pirates prefer Evidence Makgopa, Kermit Erasmus, and Zakhele Lepasa up front, so Marou’s chances of playing are limited. If Jose Riveiro thinks highly of him, he may be loaned out.
Even in training, the Pirates striker is having difficulty adjusting, according to Phakaaathi.
“Marou is leaving the team, there is no doubt about that. The guy is struggling to cope, even at training. He has been given the chance to show what he can do, but it’s juts not working out for him. I’ve seen his videos before he came to the team, we all thought that he was going to be the next big foreign player in the league,” Phakaaathi reported on Monday.
“His time is over, I don’t want to lie. That’s unless if the coach (Jose Riveiro) still needs him. But the management doesn’t see why they still have to keep him at the club. Orlando Pirates have had a difficult season so far, failing to capitalise on their preseason form which saw them unbeaten in eight games”.
Prior to the AFC Championship, the Buccaneers had lost their previous two league games. If Riveiro wants his team to place second in the DStv Premiership, he needs a top striker.
