The Zambian midfielder is out of the picture at Sundowns and has not been registered for the season.
He spent last season on loan at Celtic, making 19 appearances and scoring four goals, but club CEO Khumbulani Konco says they signed too many players who fulfill a similar role.
“We did well with our signings this season,” Konco tells KickOff.com. “He [Mulenga] did well for us last season, but it would not have made sense to sign him again when we have other capable players in the same position.”
Mulenga joined Sundowns as a high-profile signing at the start of 2013/14, with Pitso Mosimane signing his praises and calling him “a general and an exceptional player”, but the Zambian has never quite got his chance at Chloorkop.
