Last year the Siya crew first broke the news that the Soweto Giants were in search of a highly prolific striker in the wake of Tendai Ndoro. Following this, the Buccaneers entered multiple races with other PSL giants to land the signatures of with Leonardo Castro or Jeremy Brockie where they lost out to Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns for the respective strikers.

However, it would appear that Pirates have had a trump card in the 28-year-old Zambian striker who has been touted as a player who will make a significant difference to the club and the PSL.

“Mulenga was a wanted man. He was wanted across the continent by some of Africa’s giants such as Raja Casablanca. In Europe we know there are French-based based clubs that were vying for his signature,” Mbele told the crew. 

“So it makes it even more special that he chose to play his football at Orlando Pirates. For those who still need more confirmation about the kind of player he is, just search some of his videos on YouTube to see the kind of calls he has scored,” added Mbele.

The Bucs administrative official further told the crew that the club was happy with the signings it has made in transfer period.

“We are happy with the direction of the club and the players that have been brought on will add to our strength. We will always be intentional about who we sign,” concluded Mbele.

Pirates have managed to climb up the PSL table and are currently in third spot where they are five points behind leaders Sundowns. Their next fixture is against Ajax Cape Town at the Cape Town Stadium this evening.

Mamelodi Sundowns are believed to be closing on a sensational swoop for Belgium-based midfielder Andile Jali. The South Africa international, who joined KV Oostende in 2014, is in the final six months of his current deal with the Belgian club. Jali has been linked with several moves in and around Europe as well as a possible return to the Premier Soccer League (PSL), but according to SowetanLive, the 27-year-old could soon be joining the star-studded ranks of the Brazilians.
