The Warriors international was not registered and the club was waiting for his papers so that he can to can play as a local player.

Mokwena said about Lunga, as cited by IDiski Times: “If there’s some form of silver lining in the dark cloud it can be Divine, I think he was good, it’s difficult to play against a front-three that not only has speed and physicality but very little defensive responsibilities.

“Saleng doesn’t track back etc, I think there were one or two good individual performances and Divine’s performance was one of those, stable, zero mistakes but okay a bit difficult with the build-up but that will come with more understanding. When he understands what to do in certain schemes.”
