Theophilus 'Ronaldo' Tsowaseb's agent has reportedly confirmed his move to Absa Premiership giants Orlando Pirates from their namesake, Namibia Premier League side Orlando PiratesThe 24-year-old striker reportedly announced on Monday that he had signed a three year deal with the Soweto giants, Orlando Pirates. Tsowaseb made his debut for the Namibia national team 'Brave Warriors' against Ghana just last month.
''We have been keeping an eye on Tsowaseb for the last six months and in January, I approached Dr Irvin Khoza (Orlando Pirates chairman) to tell them about this player I believed is a future superstar. He then asked me to bring Ronaldo and the player subsequently impressed the technical team during the two weeks he was there,'' his agent Collin April told the Namibia Sun.
Tsowaseb will join the Buccaneers once his move is finalized with the PSL according to reports in Namibia and he will compete with recently signed Mozambique international forward Helder Pelembe as well as Bafana Bafana striker Kermit Erasmus, Zambia international forward Collins Mbesuma and others.
''He must work hard and stay focused because I believe he has the potential to go far. I have to congratulate Sedekias Gowaseb (chairman of Orlando Pirates in Namibia) for a job well done. I think the deal will strengthen the relationship between the two Pirates teams,'' he concluded.
A Goal source in the Bucs camp described 'Ronaldo' as a hard running striker with an eye for goals.
''Tsowaseb was here last week. He looks like an athlete, full of running and he was good in the box as the Namibian scored a number goals during the training sessions at Rand Stadium,'' the source told Goal.
