JOHANNESBURG: Recent Orlando Pirates acquisition Augustine Mulenga has revealed that he has been settling well and enjoying the atmosphere at the club.  

 The 28-year-old attacker recently opened his goal scoring account for the Buccaneers when he scored their winner in a 2-1 victory over Bloemfontein Celtics with a stunning rocket shot which left tongues wagging.  The Zambian international has praised the work ethic he has experienced at the club which has seen them win 80% of their matches this season.

“The team spirit here and the willingness to work has been great since my arrival. We don’t want to lose, we all put in 100% effort and we do our best to encourage each other. I think that is why the team has been so good at grinding out results. We interact and joke with each other but when it’s time to work, we all share the same focus, ambition and vision which is to bring glory to the Orlando Pirates badge,” said Mulenga on the club’s website.

“Since my arrival at Pirates, I’ve seen nothing but great character and a willingness to work, and I feed off it every day,” he added.

Mulenga will hope he can deliver the goods for his side to close the gap between them and log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns when they travel to relegation threatened SuperSport United at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Wednesday night.
