Mulenga completed his move to Orlando Pirates in the last week of the January transfer month.
“Orlando Pirates were looking for a player who was expected to walk straight into their team and be able to do it,” Mutale told Lusaka Times.
“Augustine had a lot of agents looking for clubs but none of them made a concrete offer.
“We had three or four people from Europe inquiring but people were using his age as a liability implying that at 28 he wasn’t worth much.
“Pirates specifically looked at his age as a main selling factor.”
