Bucs To Replace Shonga With New Signing?

The Buccaneers confirmed on Wednesday that the club has signed Shonga’s countryman, Austin Muwowo, from Nkana FC of Zambia.

Although he is known for his ability as a winger, Muwowo is equally gifted as a striker and his attacking prowess, as well as having a knack for scoring goals.

The 24-year-old scored 10 goals and provided eight assists for Forest Rangers – the Zambian club he played for last season while on loan from Nkana.

Reports emerged from Egypt this week, as reported on the Soccer Laduma website, that Al Ahly are interested in signing Shonga.

According to reports in Egyptian media, Pirates have reportedly received a multimillion-rand offer for the 22-year-old forward.

Shonga finished the 2018/19 season with eight goals from 21 appearances for Pirates.

Al Ahly have reportedly tabled a R15 million offer for the player’s services as they look to bolster their squad with attacking players.  

Depending on the plans for coach Milutin Sredojevic’s team for the new season, and after assessing the depth of the squad after the nine signings officially confirmed by the club, the Buccaneers could look to sell Shonga and replace him with Muwowo in the current team.
