Cape Town - Orlando Pirates forward Augustine Mulenga says he wants to make his mark at the club and emulate legendary Zambian star Isaac Chansa.

Mulenga reported for training on Wednesday for the first time after earlier signing on a three-and-a-half year deal from Zanaco.

He joins fellow Copper Bullets star Justin Shonga in the ranks of the Milutin Sredojevic-coached outfit.

Nonetheless, the 28-year-old wants to follow in the footsteps of Chansa, who helped Bucs win a famous treble in the 2010/11 Absa Premiership season.

He told the club's official website: "If there is one former Zambian that I would like to emulate, it would be Isaac Chansa. He came here and made a big impact at the club.

"Even today, when Chansa comes by our town, people remember what he did for the club. They would say, ‘Do you see Isaac? Do you know what he did with Orlando Pirates?' 

"Pirates is a big team with an impressive history. I’m honoured to be here and like my countryman and others before me, I want to work hard for the club and create a lasting legacy that would make me and my country proud.

"I want to be able to tell my kids one day that I was at Orlando Pirates and show them what I achieved with the club."

The Buccaneers next travel to the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium to face Chippa United in a league clash on Sunday February 25.

Kick-off is at 15:30.
