Gabuza to join Erasmus in France?

Phakaaathi Reporter

Phakaaathi has learnt that Orlando Pirates striker Thamsanqa Gabuza may leave the club at the end of the season.

A source close to the player has revealed that Gabuza is set for a trial at French Ligue 1 club Rennes where his former Pirates strike partner Kermit Erasmus now plays.

“That is why he has hardly been affected by being benched and Tendai Ndoro taking over the team’s goal-scoring responsibilities. I heard Erasmus recommended him and Rennes watched the videos of them playing together and liked what they saw,” said a source.

Gabuza and Erasmus were in scintillating form and formed a formidable striking partnership during Pirates’ Caf Confederation Cup run where the former finished as joint top-scorer with six goals.
