Worgu For Orlando Pirates?

Posted: 2008-09-16 10:46

Orlando Pirates’ hunt for another top striker continues with the news that they have extended their search to Nigeria for Enyimba’s red hot striker Stephen Worgu.

Worgu has been the man behind Enyimba’s good run in the CAF Champions League and is currently the tournament’s top goal scorer having netted 13 times.

The Nigerian striker was on target this week when Enyimba beat Al Hilal 4-1 during their CAF Champions League fixture yesterday.

Sources close to Orlando Pirates have revealed that club chairman Irvin Khoza has already put in a ‘great’ offer for Worgu and Enyimba have agreed to release him but only after the completion of the current CAF Champions League.

“There were two options, one for Aldave from Sundowns and the other one for Worgu from Enyimba. One of Enyimba’s officials was in the country recently to meet Khoza with regards to signing Worgu and I understand that the striker will only join Pirates after the CAF Champions League,” a source inside the club told KickOff.com.

Enyimba’s Uche Kalu has already poured high praise on Worgu and believes the striker could be voted the best player in the Champions League.

“He’s a very talented player and his speed is completely unbelievable. He’s a great asset to the team right now and I think he will surely win the Best Player Award.

“If he keeps on scoring as much as he’s doing, I think he will set a Champions League goal scoring record.

“He just plays unbelievable football, very quick on the ball and calm in front of goal. That’s what makes him so deadly

Ok the Worgu deal never happened, but the same team have signed another Nigerian called Otorogu,who came to South Africa after his spell in Tunisia,and he think that playing in South Africa willl improve his chances of playing in the national team and also atract topeuropean teams

Can somebody update us on the carrer progress of Worgu?

How do you know if one league is more competitive than the other? by looking at the fifa ranking? or by looking at one good team in that league?

Or the result of a team in African competition?

Dynamos of Zimbabwe is currently doing well in African champs league does it mean their league is better than of Morroco?

gabe my friend, the Naija league is not better that our league, yes you guys might have, in fact you have better talent than us if we compare national teams but when it comes to league you have remember that we source from different continents hence the competitiveness. look at Brazil and Argentine, they have far better squads than England but their league is far lesser competetive than EPL. I wouldn't say we have all the money in the world but i am dead sho we have it than any other league in Afrika, so don't sweat my friend no offence taken from your Milicious intent.

heard the guy is a class act. havent watched him play, but he has about 13 champions league goals.

he'd be better off in a european club than in south-africa. enyimba is better than orlando pirates, why is he goin there?

afterall, taiye taiwo left from lobi to marseille and manucho from petro athletico to manchester united so what stops him from goin directly to europe if he is that talented

Why should he go to SA?

if he still wants to play in Africa, the Egypt should be his destination!!!

All our players that went to SA usually come back rusty.

Chukwu Ndukwe then of Mamemodi Sundowns, Obinna Nwaneri used to be rock solid when he was at home. dude should go to gateway fc instead

hehehe. SA ko, Botswana ni
