Cape Town - Baroka FC coach Kgoloko Thobejane has set his sights on finding a replacement for Pirates-bound striker Thabiso Kutumela.

The 22-year-old scored 18 goals last season to top the NFD scoring charts as Baroka secured promotion to the Absa Premiership.

Kutumela recently joined Orlando Pirates on a three-year deal after his impressive season with the Limpopo-based outfit.

"In every department we need man power and we have a team. We had players who were on loan who will return to the clubs," Thobejani told KickOff.

"And what we are thinking is to have more man power so that we can have depth in our team. But in particular our team needs a lethal striker… one who can score goals and nothing but scoring goals. Because it is where the problem lies in most cases.

"It was a wise move because it is up to him to choose where to go at and it is not us who can decide on his behalf. So it is very important to be just open to say 'I want to go' and then it was a good move for him."
