Shonga – I Am Happy Being Here

Justin Shonga has said he is happy to be a Cape Town City player, after the club confirmed his arrival today.

Shonga joined from Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila, where he had spent the first half of this season.

The Zambian International’s move to TTM was a surprise to many, and Shonga had reportedly been unsettled at the club, expressing his desire to move on.

The former Orlando Pirates striker says that he is grateful to Chairman John Comitis for bringing him to Cape Town, and he hopes to achieve great things at the Citizens.

“I’d like just to appreciate the Chairman of the club for taking consideration in signing me,” Shonga said in his first statement as a City player.

“Cape Town City is a good club, they’ve got good players, and I’m so excited to join the club.”

“I am happy being here, Cape Town is a good place. Just looking forward to fitting into the team, having a good time and working hard with the team, win games, win trophies with this team, because Cape Town has a good reputation, in terms of winning, and I’d say we’ll work hard for the people of Cape Town, we’ll try to achieve more for them.”

“Looking forward to good days here in Cape Town and I would like to say to the fans, I appreciate their support that they give to Cape Town City, despite we are playing in the stadiums with no supporters right now, but we’ll keep on working hard to make them proud!”

City are next in action on the 16th when they face Kaizer Chiefs at the Cape Town Stadium.
