New Orlando Pirates midfielder Augustine Mulenga will make a massive impact with the South African Premier Soccer League side.

According to former Zambian international Clifford Mulenga, the new Buccaneers player is the real deal and is obsessed with scoring goals.

Currently campaigning in the National First Division with Jomo Cosmos, Mulenga said he is not related to the new Pirates player.

"As much as we are not related I know him very well. He's a potent finisher and very obsessed about scoring goals," he said to the Sowetan.

"He was one of the best players in the Zambian league. I like his style of play a lot because he also creates goals.

"Augustine will make a big impact at Pirates because I believe joining a team of Pirates' calibre was his dream.

“He cannot afford to squander this big opportunity. He knows what is expected from him even back in Zambia."

The former Zanaco FC player joined Milutin Sredojevic’s side on a three-year deal in January and is yet to make his debut in South Africa after sustaining an injury in training.
