Orlando Pirates have congratulated their new signing Austin Muwowo on winning the 2019 Zambian Footballer of the Year award.

The 22-year-old Muwowo signed for the Buccaneers last month after a stellar season with Zambian club Nkana FC.

However, the player is yet to make an appearance for the Soweto giants this campaign.

Pirates said on their website: “The 22-year-old Muwowo has not yet played an official match for the Buccaneers but is currently training with the rest of the squad.”

Muwowo was also included in the 2019 FAZ Team of the Year.

Another Bucs player, Augustine Mulenga, won the Zambian Footballer of the Year prize in 2017.
