Wome moves to Pirates on loan

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.
