CHIPOLOPOLO striker Augustine Mulenga says he wants to achieve more than Isaac Chansa did at Orlando Pirates.
Mulenga has joined the Soweto giants from Zanaco on a three-year deal and joins Chipolopolo team mate Justin Shonga who has already settled at the ‘Buccaneers’.
Mulenga told Thomas Mlambo’s ‘Sports at 10’ programme on SABC 3 that he was happy to join the club he has supported as a child.
“When I heard that Orlando Pirates want my services, I didn’t waste time to think this and that, I just said I would join. In France they came for me when I had already signed for Pirates. Isaac left a mark here. I want to achieve even more than Isaac achieved for Pirates. I came here to help them achieve things,” Mulenga said.
The MTN/FAZ Super League 2017 player of the year also discussed his decision to play in Zambia’s World Cup qualifier against Nigeria in Uyo last October despite learning of his daughter’s death on the eve of the match.
“I received the news and I told the coach that this is what happened back home. And he told me that these things happen. You just have to be strong. You are the people I am relying on you…” he recalled.
Mulenga said he had recovered from the ankle injury he sustained in training
