Football fans in South Africa have taken to social media to comment on Bucs' new striker.

On Thursday, Orlando Pirates announced that they had acquired the services of Cameroon international Marou Souaibou until 2025.

The Indomitable Lion had a great spell with his former team Coton Sport whereby he won two league titles and went on to be crowned the 2022 Player of the Season.

Souaibou, who was recently linked with French side Clermont Foot, has joined his teammates as confirmed by the Soweto heavyweights in preparations for their forthcoming PSL game which is against Stellenbosch FC on Sunday.

Here are the fans' reactions regarding Pirates' new forward.

  • Peter Shalulile, Mamelodi Sundowns, September 2022

    Souaibou better than Shalulile & Bimenyimana?

    Souaibou walks into the starting 11 of any team in South Africa currently and that should be common sense. Far better than [Peter] Shalulile and Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana combined - Bana Malome

  • Boitumelo Radiopane, Orlando Pirates, November 2021

    Radiopane, Mabasa better?

    There is absolutely no player here you should have recalled [Boitumelo] Radiopane and Mabasa at least - Clement Nchabeleng

  • Souaibou Marou, Cameroon

    Souaibou needs service

    With a good supply of assists/chances then we are bound to punish our opponents. Welcome to Orlando Pirates - GT Letsoko

  • Arthur Zwane Kaizer Chiefs.

    Chiefs, Downs better in developing youngsters?

    I feel sorry for Radiopane and all South African young players who dream of playing for Orlando Pirates. Well done to Kaizer Chiefs & Mamelodi Sundowns for giving opportunities to South African young players - Mfundo Zondo

  • Jose Riveiro Orlando Pirates.

    Good riddance Pirates

    We need to sign more Elite Level Players such as this one. Orlando Pirates Football Club must sign players who are either established National Team Players or they must be players who have the potential to represent their National Team. No more mickey mouse signings please - Mlungisi Zondo

  • Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana, Kaizer Chiefs, January 2023

    Better than Bimenyimana?

    He hasn’t touched the ball but he’s already better Bimenyimana - Chris Excel

  • Orlando Pirates

    Pirates have supply problem

    Chances of him being useless are very high. We still have a problem with supply - Sizwe Mhayise

  • Kermit Erasmus against Golden Arrows.

    Combine Souaibou with Erasmus?

    Play this man upfront with [Kermit] Erasmus hence he is more of creative than selfish so that we will see his potential - Andy Cece Ngcobo

  • Cristiano Ronaldo Messi

    Combination of Ronaldo, Messi, Halaand, Benzema et al?

    I am from Cameroon, trust me when I say this guy is a combination of Halaand, Ronaldo, Messi, Ronaldinho, Mbappe, Neymar, and Benzema in one!!.. What a signing - Khitletsi

  • Bienvenu Eva Nga, Orlando Pirates, August 2022

    Like Eva Nga?

    I am worried because he looks like Eva Nga but I have a faith in him we need goals - Reginald
