AmaZulu FC president Sandile Zungu has brushed off the latest rumors linking defender Riaan Hanamub with a potential move to Orlando Pirates.
Hanamub, the club’s left-back, has on several occasions been a talking point during this current transfer window.
HANAMUB LINKED WITH ORLANDO PIRATES
The Namibian international has been linked with a potential winter move to the Soweto giants, lately.
This is after Hanamub’s impressive displays since joining Usuthu from Chippa United in July 2022.
Links to a possible move to the Buccaneers or another DStv Premiership for Hanamub were roaming around and had been dismissed by Zungu a few months ago.
RIAAN HANAMUB ADMITS HE WANTED TO JOIN PIRATES
Interestingly, speaking to iDiski Times a few days ago, the 28-year-old defender admitted he would be happy to see himself playing for one of the biggest teams on the continent.
“It’s every player’s dream to play for one of the biggest clubs in the country,” the player said, as quoted by iDiski Times.
“But if it doesn’t happen, AmaZulu is also a big brand, and I’m really happy to be here, and I’m always willing to give my best.”
SANDILE ZUNGU RUBBISH HANAMUB PIRATES LINK
However, with the rumors having continued, the club’s boss, Zungu has, again poured cold water over it, saying that they had never even spoken to any club regarding the player’s available.
“The rumors about Hanamub are malicious. We have not been approached by any club regarding his services. He is not for sale,” Zungu told the club’s media department.
BEN MOTSHARI JOINS AMAZULU FROM ORLANDO PIRATES
Meanwhile, Usuthu have announced the signing of midfielder Ben Motswari from the Sea Robbers.
“We welcome Ben into the team and trust that he will settle in well and make a good contribution in Pablo Franco’s side,” Zungu said in a statement.
The former Bafana Bafana midfielder has penned a deal until the end of the season with the KwaZulu-Natal outfit, with an option to extend it.
Motshari left the Buccaneers after having a tough time following the arrival of a few midfielders in the past two years, including Philip Ndlondlo, Miguel Timm and, recently, Patrick Maswanganyi among others.
