Bucs fans who are fed up with the team are planning a march.
Ohizu's strong start to his first season in the DStv Premiership has sparked interest from a number of clubs interested in tempting him away from Sekhukhune United, with Pirates being one of them.
However, if Babina Noko is approached for his services, as revealed by the Siya crew in edition 1257 of Soccer Laduma, indications are that the striker would choose a move to Europe over staying in Mzansi.
Chiefs to miss out on Mzansi's brightest prospects?
Now, a football middleman with a long history in the field and experience working on various deals for many Premier Soccer League clubs has revealed why he believes the Nigerian should join the Buccaneers instead.
"I don't believe Ohizu is ready to relocate to Europe at this time." If the Pirates' transaction goes through, it will be beneficial to him. It would be beneficial for him to spend a season or two with Pirates before moving to Europe because, with all due respect to Sekhukhune, they are not at the level where they can take a player who is truly ready to compete at this moment. He is not 18 or 20, but in his twenties, and a player in his twenties heading to a European team must be prepared. The teams do not have enough time to prepare for him.
When a player is from Africa and he is already in his 20s, he must be fully prepared that when you get there, you must hit the ground running, and I don't think he is in that position now, given that this is his first season in the PSL," the secret agent explained.
Moving to Pirates now will be a great move for his career because he already has a season in the PSL under his belt, he can offer value to Orlando Pirates because he knows the terrain, and a team the size of Pirates can prepare him for a career in Europe. Consider what happened to Percy Tau, who left South Africa as the best player in the country, had already earned a full international cap, and had won the CAF Champions League, but failed in Europe. The reason for this was that he was already 24 years old when he arrived. Now, if Percy Tau had the good fortune to transfer as early as Benni McCarthy, Thulani Serero, or Steven Pienaar, he would have a leg up on the competition.
If Percy Tau had been fortunate enough to go as early as Benni McCarthy, Thulani Serero, or Steven Pienaar, he would have been able to reach a certain level since the team would have been patient in preparing him.
When it comes to Ohizu, it all depends on where he goes in Europe. I work with players that are migrating from Africa to Europe, so I know exactly what European coaches are looking for in an African player and what they want from them. Ohizu is 25 now, and he'll be 26 by the time you take him to Europe next season. However, because the Pirates are a large club, he can give them something and they can support him. He can play anywhere in the world if he plays there regularly for two seasons.
