Mbulu, 19, has been promoted to Bucs’ first team from their development, as confirmed by the club last week. Speaking to the club’s official website, the young star has explained how the big news of his promotion came about. 

“Footballers spend their time on the field, whether training or matches or even meetings. Everything we do is at the training ground. So when you get a call to the office, you start to think of many different things. I didn’t know what to expect. I then went into the Chairman’s office and after he told me what was happening – the promotion – I called my sister to let her know. We spoke for a long time, she was mostly crying, but also very happy for me,” said Mbulu.

“My mom was also very happy because her prayers were answered. She always believed that this day would come. The next few days after that announcement, I started getting calls from the rest of my family who was wishing me well. I come from a very rural area so the message was probably getting up and down to the rest of my family and they were calling me as they heard the news. I’m very happy for them as well,” he explained.

I strongly believe that you're going to get the opportunity to showcase your talent because "Micho" has proven that he believes in the young talent.Who was thinking that Foster will feature as regularly as he has been doing?
