Chansa Visits Bucs In Zambia, Two Stars Hailed

Two Orlando Pirates Stars Hailed By Club Former Midfielder

By Soccer Laduma - Jul 16, 2018 11:38 AM

Two Orlando Pirates stars have been hailed by the former Bucs midfielder, Isaac Chansa, who visited the side during their camp in Zambia.

Chansa is pleased with the progress being made by Justin Shonga and Augustine Mulenga at Bucs.

“I heard that the team was coming to Zambia for pre-season and when it was confirmed that they’d be in Ndola, I just had to come over and say hello. I live in Lusaka - which is 316 km away - but (the) distance was not a factor in getting to greet the team. An important part of my life was spent at Pirates and as the saying goes: ‘once a Pirate, always a Pirate’. I will always be a Buccaneer,” said Chansa. 

“It feels great and it’s also an honour seeing the continued relationship. From the days of Denis Lota and now with my boys, Justin Shonga and Augustine Mulenga, the relationship continues to grow. I have been talking to them, Shonga and Mulenga, and encouraging them to continue working hard and contribute to the team. But overall it’s great for me to see the team and being welcomed like this shows that I’m still part of the family, even though many of the people I knew have since left,” added the 34-year-old.

Chansa had two spells with Pirates, between 2004 and 2007, and between 2010 and 2012.

“A lot of Zambians support Orlando Pirates. Since the time of Denis Lota who did very well and was a top goalscorer, to my contribution in the treble... they have been behind this team and continue to be. It has been a long time since I last wore a Pirates shirt but to this day, people still call me “Bhakaniya” even though I’ve played for other clubs here in Zambia. They remember what I did, and that’s special,” he adds. 

“To see the next generation in Shonga and Mulenga is heartwarming, more so when they are doing well for the Club. I believe in them and I believe in the Club too. I know that they will achieve greatness if they just keep focused and continue working hard on their dream. I would like to think that they chose to be here because they looked at our previous success as Zambian players at Pirates, and also realized that this is a very professionally run Club with massive CAF aspirations. Together, they and the Club are a perfect fit because they want the same things. And hopefully they can inspire the next phase of Zambian stars to continue that legacy that we have with Pirates,” said Chansa.

You & Oyekachi Okonkwo will always have a special place in my heart! The crackers you used to score! In first season your passion for the game made you chase criminal referees who were robbing us games! Kikikikiki! Thank you so much Mr. Chasa! During your times teams were afraid of us!
