A former Orlando Pirates striker doesn’t seem like he will struggle to find a new home, ahead of next season. 

Pirates signalled their intent to overhaul their squad, by releasing six players two weeks ago with two strikers falling victim.

Pirates released two strikers

Those strikers being Saouibou Marou and Kermit Erasmus. Both strikers were expected to leave the club, at the end of the season, with their release no surprise. Both players were on the peripheries of the squad, and were clearly not in the plans of Pirates. This is in lieu of the club having ambitions of signing some new attackers in their place.

For Erasmus, that won’t be a problem, as he does not look like he will struggle to get a fresh start. The player looks to be in demand with two DStv Premiership sides looking at him for his services. Last week this publication reported that Cape Town City were trying to lure him back to the Western Cape. Now according to Soccer-Laduma, Sekhukhune United are also interested inn him after leaving Pirates. 

Erasmus has Sekhukhune option?

“News reaching the Siya crew is that Erasmus has had his name mentioned among the potential signings for Sekhukhune United. With Babina Noko preparing for a return to the CAF Confederation Cup, Erasmus is said to be one of the players targeted for his experience and goalscoring ability to strengthen the side.At 33, the striker is said to be planning for a few more years of top-Xight football to give back to the game which he has been loyal to for 18 years since graduating from the SuperSport United development in 2006.” Wrote the club. 

With Sekhukhune playing in the CAF Confederation Cup next season, the addition of Erasmus could be shrewd. The player comes with a wealth of experience playing on the continent, and also in different continents. He is also a big game player who has played for two of South Africa’s big three.
