Mulenga Set For Return To Former Club

Zambia international forward Augustine Mulenga looks set to return to AmaZulu, iDiski Times has been informed.

The 34-year-old returned to the DStv Premiership at the start of the 2023/24 season after recovering from a career-threatening injury he suffered at Usuthu and starring back in his homeland with Napsa Stars.

And he’s been an ever-present figure for Chippa, predominantly featuring as a winger under Morgan Mammilla, who was replaced as head coach last week.

With Kwanele Kopo and Thabo September, the new co-head coaches installed, Thabiso Lebitso has parted ways and Mulenga is set to follow suit.

Sources have indicated a move back to Durban is drawing close, subject to a routine medical check for the veteran forward.

Coach Pablo Franco Martin has been calling for attacking reinforcement, specifically wide players since the start of the new season and it appears a short-term option of Mulenga was the preferred addition for the mid-season transfer window.
