An experienced former Orlando Pirates striker who left the PSL at the end of the previous season has joined a new team in Morocco.
On Tuesday night, Justin Shonga was introduced as the new player for Maghreb AS de Fes in the Botola Pro League.
Since leaving Pirates in 2019, Shonga has played for various African teams, notably Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM), Cape Town City, and Ismaily SC.
He most recently had Sekhukhune United on his roster, which he had transferred to in January after a brief stint with Ismaily of Egypt.
However, Sekhukhune, who took a different tack with the hiring of Kaitano Tembo as head coach, fired the 25-year-old marksman just six months into his deal.
