After the acquisition of Martin, it is now believed that they are targeting Pirates’ Cameroonian striking duo Souaibou Marou and former player Bienvenu Eva Nga. Marou arrived at the Buccaneers amongst much fanfare, as he had just come back from the 2022 FIFA World Cup. He was also a rare case in the Indomitable Lions squad for the showpiece, as a he was a locally based player at the time.

Marou may have not taken to the field at the World Cup, but for Pirates fans, just him being there was a marker of the calibre of player they were set to sign. Things have not turned out that way for the player at the club, however, as he remained a bit part player throughout the second half of the season, not being able to score nor lay an assist for his teammates. In the end, he even ended up losing his place on the bench to fellow Cameroonian Eva Nga, who was also previously out of favour under Jose Riveiro

Now according to the latest reports, the duo could well end up as teammates once again, this time at Chippa. Rumours have no stopped linking Eva Nga to a move away, even though the player was initially thought to have saved his Pirates career. Last week, this publication mentioned that both the Eastern Cape side and SuperSport United were keen for his services. Now, the latest on Marou is that, the Chilli boys are watching his situation closely too according to Soccer-Laduma.

“Marou is facing an uncertain future with Pirates. He is likely to be loaned for next season to help him build his confidence. Chippa United is monitoring the situation as part of the plans to assemble a formidable team after a difficult season in the previous campaign,” said a source to the same publication.
