Thamsanqa Gabuza cryptic about new Orlando Pirates contract

Posted: 4 December 2015 Time: 15:21

Orlando Pirates striker Thamsanqa Gabuza has preferred to remain cryptic regarding his future at the club despite the possibility of him signing a pre-contract elsewhere in January.

Gabuza's contract with Pirates is set to expire in June next year, with speculation inevitably mounting that the CAF Confederation Cup joint-top scorer could be set to leave.

The former Golden Arrows striker has been in fine form for the Mighty Buccaneers in recent times, helping his team finish as runners-up in the African tournament.

Gabuza has refused to comment about his future at Pirates.

“I don’t want to comment about my contract. It’s not yet finished,” he says. “I am still a Pirates player.”

Gabuza has attributed his success in the CAF competition, where he finished as joint-top scorer with six goals, to determination and hard work.

“It’s all about hard work and what you want in life. The coach [Eric Tinkler] has been helping me a lot and also Kermit Erasmus, especially in one-on-one situations [with the goalkeeper].

“I am happy about the award [as top goalscorer]. It’s a reward for hard work. The tournament has helped me a lot to grow as a player and playing against top teams like Zamalek has motivated me a lot as a player.

“The CAF is gone now and we need to concentrate on the League,” Gabuza concludes.
