How Shonga Helped Pirates Sign Mulenga…

Justin Shonga isn’t just helping Orlando Pirates on the field, with the attacker revealing that he played a role in making sure that the Buccaneers managed to sign Augustine Mulenga.

The two players, who are compatriots and international teammates, joined the Buccaneers at different times, with Shonga making the move to Parktown at the start of the season and Mulenga coming on board at the start of 2018.

Mulenga grabbed his first goal for the club in spectacular fashion earlier this week, and Shonga says that he’s happy that his friend and countryman has gotten off the mark in the Absa Premiership.

The youngster also added that, if it wasn’t for him, Mulenga may be playing his football in West Africa, rather than here in the South.

Speaking to the media this week, the 21-year-old said, “I was very excited to have my fellow countryman and my brother here. I told him that it would be better for him to join me in South Africa because he wanted to go to West Africa to another club there. I advised him to come here, I told him that it’s a big club in Africa, so if he joins me then it would be better if we could work together.

“I encouraged him and he thought twice, and he came to join me. I was very excited for him to open his Pirates account with a great goal. I was very happy for him.”

Pirates’ next game sees them take on SuperSport United next week, with their two Zambians hoping to add to their goal tally as the Buccaneers look to push Mamelodi Sundowns for the league title.
