Now in what had been a protracted transfer saga involving the two Soweto giants, Chiefs ended up beating Pirates to the signature of Chivaviro. After a stellar season which saw him score 17 goals in all competitions for the now relegated side, Chivaviro was initially linked with a move to Amakhosi, before that quietened down and it was then Sea Robbers who were starting to make ground on getting his signature towards the end of the season.

It was not long before it was reported that Chiefs were set to meet the representatives of Chivaviro, in an effort to beat other rivals, including Pirates to his signature. After some time passed, it was reported the Pirates were back in the lead for the player, before another report soon after, claimed that he would prefer not to sign for the ‘Happy People’ because they already had a multitude of forward options.

It was then a surprise when reports resurfaced just last week that Pirates were stepping up their chase to wrap up the deal for Chivaviro, beating Chiefs in the process. But now in a fresh and rather definite looking twist, Chiefs seem to have finally reached an agreement to sign the player. Now according to KickOff.com the Buccaneers did everything they could to get the player, but his heart was already at Naturena. 

Why Chivaviro chose Chiefs over Pirates

“Pirates and Gallants had reached an agreement on a transfer fee, but the player rejected the move, When Ranga went to Chiefs, he received the most appealing presentation ever. Pirates understood his decision as they wouldn’t want an unhappy player in their camp. Pirates tabled a better Lnancial offer than Chiefs, but there needs to be an agreement between all parties for a move to happen. That’s how Pirates lost out on the move.” Said the source to same publication. (https://pixelsmithstudios.com/)
