'In the Ghanaian Premier League you will be bullied by defenders, but I’m sure it is the same in South Africa', said Peprah.

With just one appearance and no goals for the Buccaneers so far this season, the Ghananian, who netted in 12 goals last season for his Kumasi based former side King Faisal, reckons the South African league is stronger than his home country’s.

“I’m going to do my best and try all I can to help them achieve all their goals. I want to be amongst the 2021/22 season strikers to score the most goals. I want to help the club win some silverware,” he told the club’s media. 

“In the Ghanaian Glo Premier League you will be bullied by defenders, but I’m sure it is the same in South Africa. The league in Ghana was very tough and competitive but as compared to the South African league, I believe this one is tougher.

The 20-year old also revealed that he had plenty of offers, but chose Bucs because he believes the Soweto giants will help him take his career forward. 

“When the League back home ended, I received many offers but I chose Orlando Pirates because they were one of the clubs I’ve always wanted to join, so I’m happy to be here,” he continued. 

“I also chose Pirates because I knew they are a club that will be the next step for me to build my career. Also, the PSL will help me improve my career. That’s why I joined Orlando Pirates.”
