Justin Shonga is no stranger to controversy

The 25-year-old former Orlando Pirates player has made headlines and angered previous clubs in the past with some of his dubious decisions.

A star at the Buccaneers, he was suspended by the club after breaking a Covid-19 protocol which was put in place to stop the spread of the virus among players and the technical team.

Shonga also found himself in the news during his time at Ismaily SC. Shonga joined the Egyptian club on a free transfer but has his contract terminated after just four appearances, KingFUT reported.

Shonga showed some promise on his return to South African shores with Sekhukhune United. He scored twice and notched up one assist in 10 games. His last goal for the club even earned him a Premier Soccer League Goal of the Month nomination for April.

It remains to be seen just how long he will remain with Sekhukhune United.

Former Pirates star Justin Shonga parts ways with Egyptian club over unpaid wages, agent claims

Former Orlando Pirates player Justin Shonga has parted ways with Ismaily SC after barely three months with the Egyptian club. Shonga's representative, Karabo Tshabuse said the club had failed to pay his wages since joining.

Shonga was an integral part of Pirates during his three-year stint there and scored 16 goals and in 77 games. He also contributed with 16 assists. He struggled to find form after he left the Buccaneers but his signing by the Egyptian club was viewed by many as a fresh start for the talented Zambian forward.

Shonga's agent also claimed that the Egyptian club withheld the player's passport, describing it as being akin to a hostage situation. The club and player eventually reached a settlement, leading to Shonga and the club parting ways.
