Nyasha ‘Marshall’ Munetsi signs for Orlando Pirates from FC Cape Town PSL transfer news

Posted: 3 May 2016 Time: 23:59

KickOff.com can reveal that Orlando Pirates have secured the services of FC Cape Town midfielder Nyasha ‘Marshall’ Munetsi in a multi-million rand, five-year deal deal.

The 19-year-old Zimbabwean arrived in South Africa from the Friendly Academy in Harare, which was only started in 2012, and recently had a trial spell with Pirates.

Needless to say, FC Cape Town have received a handsome and quick return on their investment they acquired about a year ago, whom they once described as being 'in the mould of Yaya Toure'.

Errol Dicks, owner of the African Beasts, confirms the news of his departure and says no price can be put on the change it will bring about to another individual’s life.

“We spotted him [Munetsi] in Harare and obviously saw he’s got some potential we could work with. He came to us and flourished,” Dicks tells KickOff.com.

“We as the club are sincerely happy for him and his family, they come from humble beginnings.”

Dicks remained mum on which club Munetsi is joining due to the confidentiality contract he signed, but this website has gathered that Munetsi will be a Buccaneer next season.

The player was on a gentle stroll in the leafy suburb of Plattekloof in the northern suburbs of Cape Town when he was tracked down for comment.

“It’s through the grace of God I have achieved this,” Munetsi says.

“It is a great honour for me to play for a big club with a rich history. I thank my teammates as well as all the management and staff for their support and belief in me.

“This mean a lot to me and my family. I’m really excited about my new challenges.”
