Justin Shonga Eager To Learn From Countryman Augustine Mulenga
Orlando Pirates striker Justin Shonga has declared that he is eager to see his fellow teammate and countryman Augustine Mulenga playing in a Bucs jersey.
Speaking to Soccer Laduma, the 21-year-old striker says he is eager to learn as much as he can from the club's new signing and this time is hoping to even lead the line with the highly rated hitman.
“Augustine has always been my senior and I have looked up to him. Even back when I was a junior at Nkwazi F.C, he was one of the young strikers (who) I admired and I knew that he would go on to be successful,” said Shonga.
“Now we are both at a big club like Orlando Pirates and this means we will get to train together and play alongside (each other) as well. This makes me excited as I will get to learn a lot from a player whom I’ve always respected and looked up to.
“I can’t wait to see him play in an Orlando Pirates jersey. I know the Pirates supporters will love him and (the) public as well will get to see what Zambian people have been getting excited about,” adds the 21-year-old.
Mulenga‚ who is the reigning Zambian Footballer of the Year penned a three year deal with the Buccaneers during the January transfer window.
