Mulenga Calls For Bucs Support
Orlando Pirates' Augustine Mulenga calls on Bucs supporters ahead of final game
Orlando Pirates striker Augustine Mulenga has called on the Bucs supporters to come out in their numbers to support the side ahead of the final fixture of the season against Free State Stars.
Speaking to the club’s official website, the Zambian hitman has called for supporters to come out in their numbers to spur the team to the finish the line and create a festive atmosphere as compared to when the club played Bidvest Wits in an empty stadium a few weeks ago.
“I was happy to score a brace when we played against Bidvest Wits but it was a bittersweet moment for me because I wanted to share it with the fans and thank them for their support,” said the 28-year-old.
“It was a sad moment because when I scored that second goal, I forgot that our fans were not there and I just wanted to celebrate with them. I was only reminded when I looked up that they were not there.
“It has been a long and tough season and although we may not have won any silverware, we are happy with the progress we have made and it puts us in a good position to challenge for trophies next season”, added Mulenga.
“Now coming to the last match of the season, it’s not about the players or the coaches. It is just about our supporters. We want to give them a good send off and to thank them for the great support they always give us. I am calling on all Orlando Pirates supporters to come to the stadium on Saturday, to come watch us thank them in the best way we know”, concluded Mulenga.
Pirates have already solidified their second spot on the PSL log and qualified for the CAF Champions League.
The game against Free State Stars starts at 15h00 at the Orlando Stadium.
