Orlando Pirates head coach Josef Zinnbauer says new signing Jean-Marc Makusu has needed some time to adapt to the club but his debut is now imminent.
The Sea Robbers were left disappointed on Saturday when they walked away with only a point following an entertaining 2-2 draw in the blistering heat at the Danie Craven Stadium with Cape Town City.
The Soweto giants had a number of chances to seal the point, but had to settle for a point and, after a fourth draw in six games, the side’s ruthlessness in front of goal are being questioned.
While Zinnbauer has had to deal with a number of injuries and new players settling in, Zakhele Lepasa has led the line with this season with several dynamic displays. However, marquee signing Makusu is waiting in the wings and will soon be called upon as Zinnbauer looks for killer instinct up front.
‘I hope we get him [soon], he needs a little time, he came to us, trained with us and understands us more and he got the conditioning that he needed and I think in the next games we will have him on the field, we hope,’ Zinnbauer said.
Pirates are next in action when they face Bloemfontein Celtic on Saturday in the MTN8 final.
