New Buccaneer Terrence Dzvukamanja insists he did not join the club to add numbers, but wants to make a mark just like his fellow Zimbabweans who have donned the famous Black and white jersey before.
Dzvukamanja has penned a three-year deal with the Josef Zinnbauer coached side as they search for their first silverware in six years in the upcoming season.
The 26-year-old does not shy away from telling the club’s website that his personal target for the 2020/21 campaign includes reaching double digits.
“Yeah of course. This is what drives all players to better themselves day by day,” said Dzvukamanja.
“For me it’s two-fold, it’s about scoring goals – hopefully, double digits and also about increasing my number of assists for the season. I think as an attacking player these are two areas that a player is judged.
“I don’t want to see myself as somebody who came to Orlando Pirates just to add numbers. I have come here to work, and this is what I hope shows in my performances. I want to make a difference here and if all goes well, hopefully, I can achieve another goal of mine which is to one day play in Europe.
The former Bidvest Wits versatile player has also revealed his preferred position.
“I like the number 10 position but as an attacker, you can’t say this is my favourite position and that’s it. You must be able to play anywhere and everywhere the coaches want me to play but if I had to choose then it would be that old school number 10 position behind the striker,” added Dzvukamanja.
The new PSL season will commence on 17 October 2020 with the MTN 8 fixtures. The DStv Premiership encounters will begin Saturday, 24 October.
