Justin Shonga weighing up foreign offers

Sports Justin Shonga weighing up foreign offers

Nkwazi and Zambia striker Justin Shonga has remained calm despite attracting interest from several foreign clubs after shining in national colours this year.

South African teams Orlando Pirates and Baroka FC are leading the chase for Shonga’s signature.

The striker was instrumental in securing Zambia’s qualification for 2018 CHAN after scoring three goals in the campaign.

“I am still looking at those offers. I am yet to make a decision,” Shonga said.

On whether he would make a move abroad or wait to represent Zambia at CHAN, Shonga said:”I cannot say anything on that.”

Shonga said he is seeking to cement his place in the Chipolopolo squad ahead of next month’s World Cup qualifier against Algeria.

“I have to work hard. I know the seniors are going to come. I will just keep on pushing,” he said.

Shonga is also elated for helping Zambia to qualify for CHAN 2018.

He scored twice as Zambia beat South Africa 2-0 in Ndola on Saturday in the return match of the final qualifying round to qualify 4-2 on aggregate.

“We really wanted to qualify. We had to push hard. If we prepare well we will do better (at the CHAN finals),” Shonga said.
