Orlando Pirates’ new striker Augustine Mulenga has firmly set his sights on achieving continental success and sights Champions League gold as one of the reasons why he joined the Buccaneers.

The 27-year-old says Pirates has been his childhood team and now looks forward to helping the club achieve domestic and continental success.

“Last year I had a couple of offers which I was seriously considering but when the Orlando Pirates offer came in there was no question (of) where my heart was. During CHAN (CAF Championship of African Nations), I had some more offers come through (from teams in Egypt and France) but by then they were late as I had already signed for Orlando Pirates,” said the Zambian hitman.

“When all players retire, they would like to look back at their careers and list all the trophies they have won… I am no different. I have already won the Zambian League and other titles in Zambia but now I want to try my hand at winning other trophies in a different country.

“It’s a challenge I have set myself. I want to win the trophies here in South Africa and obviously when I refer to trophies I mean the big one, the league and/or Nedbank Cup, simply because these two trophies give us an opportunity to contest on the continent once again,” he concluded.

The burly striker is yet to feature for his new side and will be eager to open his account and join fellow countryman Justin Shonga who already has a goal to his name.
