Zanaco chairman Edward Mutale says they got midfielder Augustine Mulenga the best deal possible for him before the close of the January 2018 transfer window.

The 28-year-old midfielder and 2017 Zambia Footballer of the Year was snapped-up by South African giants Orlando Pirates before the January 31 deadline just after Chipolopolo were eliminated from the 2018 CHAN on January 27.

“Orlando Pirates were looking for a player who was expected to walk straight into their team and be able to do it,” Mutale said.

“Augustine had a lot of agents looking for clubs but none of them made a concrete offer.

“We had three or four people from Europe inquiring but people were using his age as a liability implying that at 28 he wasn’t worth much.

“Pirates specifically looked at his age as a main selling factor.”

Mulenga was Zambia’s top scorer at 2018 CHAN where he scored three goals in four matches.

He becomes Pirates’ second Chipolopolo signing in six months after striker Justin Shonga who joined them from Nkwazi last August.
