Orlando Pirates top class striker came close to signing for relegation threatened Maritzburg United?

"We had a lot of discussions, for example with Peprah in Ghana. My relationships in Ghana, with teams over there and with people representing him meant there were a lot of discussions but in the end we couldn't go forward,"

If sources close to the situation are true and accurate then it appears that before Orlando Pirates star striker Kwame Peprah joined the club he could have also signed for Maritzburg United as they were interested in him revealed by Ernst Middendorp

Putting into consideration that Kwame Peprah is still a very inexperienced striker in the context of playing for a big club like Orlando Pirates they signed him with the fear that he might end up signing for a club like Maritzburg United

Meaning that would have been the ideal club for his development considering he wouldn't be under so much pressure and the Bucs were going to have to spend a lot of money than they signed him for bringing him to South Africa

And it will take quite a number of seasons for Kwame Peprah to finally start hitting the ground running at Orlando Pirates and a big like that cannot afford to wait for him to develop and need to start winning and competing for trophies soon
