SuperSport United have confirmed the loan move midfielder Dove Wome to Orlando Pirates with immediate effect.
The Togolese midfielder played over 50 games for Matsatsantsa in his two-and-a-half-year spell at the club.
Club CEO, Stanley Matthews explained the rationale behind the loan move: “Dove is a great player and was key in our League campaign and Telkom win 2 years ago. It hurts when you know the player is high quality and that he will add value to one of your key rivals (Orlando Pirates) – but at the same time this is business and we cannot be having a player of Dove’s value sitting on the bench.”
Matthews further confirmed that the player had been engaged face to face and understood that it was the right time for a move.
“He himself is disappointed about losing his place in Togo’s Afcon squad – so now is a chance for him to show us that he should have got more game time at us and we get a chance to balance our books in the short term and hopefully recoup the rest of our investment.
