AmaZulu Football Club is thrilled to announce the return of Zambian forward, Augustine “Diego” Mulenga (34). Thr player had a pivotal role in the club’s historic second-place finish in the DStv Premiership 2020/21 season.
As a testament to his commitment to the team, Mulenga has become AmaZulu’s second signing in the January FIFA Transfer window. He has penned a six-month long deal, with an option to renew further, having turned out for Chippa United this season.
Mulenga’s contributions were instrumental in securing AmaZulu’s qualification for the CAF Champions League the following season, marking a significant milestone for the KwaZulu-Natal-based club.
Reflecting on his return to AmaZulu, the former Orlando Pirates forward said:
“If I think about it, of all the clubs that I have played for, I think I’ve enjoyed my career since the time I came here to AmaZulu FC. I didn’t even hesitate about rejoining Usuthu because I enjoyed my football this side. There are friendly people in this city who are very supportive. The supporters have been so amazing, and I wish they would continue like that to support me and the team. I’m looking forward to helping the team continue where they have left off from last year. I’m sure it’s going to be an amazing journey again with AmaZulu.”
AmaZulu Football Club President, Sandile Zungu, echoed the excitement surrounding Mulenga’s return, saying:
“We are absolutely delighted to have Augustine ‘Diego’ Mulenga back at AmaZulu Football Club. Everyone knows how sharp he was when he was playing for us. He had many memorable goals and great assists. It’s a pity that he had to leave, but as soon as we were able to get him back at AmaZulu, we did just that. Indeed, Diego is back. We are expecting the old magic from a now matured pair of boots in him. He is very excited to be here, and so we are, and the entire family of AmaZulu must rejoice.”
