Ghanaian Striker Kwame Peprah Reportedly Wants Orlando Pirates Exit After Frustrations

  • Orlando Pirates striker Kwame Peprah is rumoured to be looking for an 'out' at the Buccaneers
  • The Ghanaian has not been having a good time at the Buccaneers since sailing the ship with them last season
  • Having fallen down the pecking order under Jose Riveiro, Peprah has reportedly asked the club to look for game time elsewhere

Kwame Peprah's largely unhappy stay at Orlando Pirates might be coming to an end.

The Ghanaian forward has struggled for goals since landing at the club in the 2021/22 season, and has not featured much under new coach Jose Riveiro with Zakhele Lepasa and Bienvenu Eva Nga the preferred players.

A source reportedly told The Citizen:

“It is the World Cup year and he had hoped that he might get a chance to be considered for the Ghana national team if he continued his performances from last season. That is why he was initially uncomfortable with making a move now. He wanted to be at a place where he is comfortable and performing.

“But now he has realised that the system the new coach uses is not favourable to him and he might not get as much game time as he would love to. That is why he now wants to go elsewhere.”

Peprah might be motivated by compatriot and Bucs teammate Richard Ofori, who looks to be a certain pick for the Black Stars squad that will head for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. He was recently selected for Ghana's warm-up friendly against Brazil

The match will take place on 01 October, three weeks after the Buccaneers' last competitive fixture, Sports Brief reported. This was last Saturday, when they saw off TS Galaxy 2-0 in the DStv Premiership, with a list of friendly games being lined up to keep up this winning momentum.

A source at the club said:

“The coach is clear about what he wants and he told the squad after the TS Galaxy game that there won’t be any time off. Some of the guys need the time off, but they understand that the coach is only trying his best to make sure that the team plays their best football.”
