Zimbabwean international footballer, Divine Lunga is a reported transfer target of Belgian side K.R.C. Genk and unnamed clubs in the French Ligue 1 following his stellar performances at the Africa Cup of Nations.
Lunga’s manager, Gibson Mahachi on Thursday confirmed that there is interest for Lunga from clubs in France and Belgium, but did not name them. He said:
Yes, there are inquiries from clubs in France and Belgium. I am currently seized with those inquiries, but I can’t reveal the identity of the clubs at this stage.
You know some clubs don’t want that until such a time there is something concrete. I will confirm once there is any other development.
The 24-year-old, who plays for South African Premiership side Lamontville Golden Arrows, wowed Warriors supporters after he shackled UEFA Champions League winner and top goal-scorer for the past two seasons in the English Premier League, Mohamed Salah.
Speaking to the media on how he had managed to keep Salah quiet, Lunga said:
He (Warriors coach Sunday Chidzambga) said I must stay with Mohamed Salah because he’s a tricky guy. He’s a player who can create a goal any second, so the plan was to stay with him.
I was instructed to go with him if he cut inside (on his stronger left foot) or shove him outside (to his weaker right foot). That was the task for today.
It was hard (dealing with Salah’s movements), so I had to communicate with my defensive midfield to be aware of the positions he was taking.
It was about communication only. I wasn’t nervous. I’d been waiting for this moment for a long time to play at the Afcon. I wanted to prove that although Salah is a good player, I am a good player too.
