@CERTIFIED IDIOT I've watched Mulenga playing many times, am not convinced with him at all, he's no pirates material...cannot judge Rusike's by his maritzburg perfomance, but the potential he have and threat he pose to many teams am convinced if he was given a chance in pirates and play surrounded with stars , he was going to be one hell of a striker.

@Ant_55 Guess will see who will perform better between him and Rusike, i've watched Mulenga playing many times, am not convinced with him at all...cannot judge Rusike's by he's achievement at maritzburg, but the potential he have and threat he pose to many teams am convinced given a chance in the big teams "I see a Musona in him"

@leendomint What do you know about "this Zambian striker"? You cant doubt someone you have,never seen play. Iam a Sundowns fan but hear this from me,Mulenga is quality,I have seen him play for both Zanaco and Chipolopolo. Rusike is good but he isnt worthy the hype,I have seen him miss clear cut chances for Maritzburg

@leendomint And why do you say that? How many goals did Rusike score last season? What has he achieved in the past campaign to justify Pirates signing him? At the very least read the article. The player your're shunning is Zambian Footballer of the Year........ He scored 19 goals last season for Zanaco. Come on man get serious about your football. I f you have DSTV, take time to sometimes watch SS9...... They're forever showing Zanaco games..... You're a fan but you know nothing about football and it pains sharing a platform like this with you.

Pirates should have opted for Evans Rusike than this Zambian Striker.
