Broos surprised by Bafana star’s situation at Orlando Pirates

Bafana Bafana coach Hugo Broos has opened up on Orlando Pirates striker Zakhele Lepasa’s weird club situation.

Lepasa is currently the Belgian mentor’s lead striker in the national team.

But his situation at club level is pretty bleak! Lepasa was loaned out to SuperSport United due to limited game-time at Orlando Pirates.

But there too did he struggle for minutes under Gavin Hunt.

Lepasa’s Orlando Pirates situation disturbing Broos

“I really don’t understand it, I gave him my confidence because I know he’s a good striker and you have to give him confidence.” Hugo Broos said as quoted by FarPost.

“Zakhele is one of the players with problems at their clubs. He didn’t play at Orlando Pirates and now at SuperSport he doesn’t play every game.

“I don’t think for defenders it’s nice to play against him, his movements, he’s quick and he does everything you ask from him.

“So we have to go on with Lepasa, I’m very happy with him. I’m a little bit surprised why he’s not a standard player in his clubs.”

In other news, interest is pouring in for an Orlando Pirates attacker who’s set to leave the club.

The Ghanaian attacker joined the Buccaneers in 2021 from King Faisal FC. Despite scoring nine goals in his opening season at the club, Peprah was shipped out on loan to Maritzburg United.

Peprah struggled to impress at Maritzburg United who are on the brink of getting relegated to the Motsepe Foundation Championship.

There is some good news though for Peprah with Tanzanian giants Azam FC and Young Africans both interested in signing him!
