Eva Nga turned down overseas offers for Bucs move

Premiership

Cameroon forward Bienvenu Eva Nga turned down an overseas move before settling to sign for Orlando Pirates after Kaizer Chiefs dilly-dallied on their initial interest.

Chiefs made contact in April after Eva Nga harassed their defence, but they didn't up to their interest by improving on their initial offer.

Pirates then followed up after the 29-year-old also gave their defence a torrid time and reached an agreement to sign him last month.

Eva Nga will again be on the ladder with an improved contract at Pirates compared to what he was on at his last two previous clubs in the PSL – Bidvest Wits and Chippa United where his finances took a strain due to the club’s irregularities with payments.

Despite the money issues at Chippa, Eva Nga never stopped putting in the effort eventually ending with 10 goals.

This website has now been informed that Eva Nga had an option of heading out to the Middle East.

Kuwait Premier League club Al Qadsia was so keen on bringing the Cameroonian on board after getting wind of his exploits in the PSL.

Al Qadisa is famously remembered as the club where Brazilian gaffer Luiz Felipe Scolari once worked within the first decade of his coaching career.

"The club in Kuwait was really keen on him and it was now a matter of him making the call and he settled for the familiar environment provided by Pirates," says a source.

Eva Nga previously had a failed stay in the Asian country of Malaysia before returning to Africa through an agonising journey that took him to Ethiopia, Uganda, and Tanzania before finding a club in Mozambique.
