Cape Town City boss Jan Olde Riekerink can’t wait to unleash his new striker, Justin Shonga.
The Zambia international arrived on Tuesday from Tshakhuma FC and the Citizens have high hopes for the 24-year-old, who left Orlando Pirates for more game time at the end of last season.
Shonga could get his first run-out when struggling Kaizer Chiefs come to Cape Town Stadium on Saturday.
Dutchman Riekerink says of his new hitman: “I am very excited and happy to have Justin in the team.
“He is a very talented player from what I’ve seen. I have also heard a lot of good things about his character from some of our players who know him well.
“We believe he is a player who will contribute a lot up front, he has so many good attributes of a top striker.
“I already saw some things I like about him in the first training session so we look forward to seeing how he fits into the team.”
