Zambian legend Singuluma leaves TP Mazembe
Zambian legend Given Singuluma has left TP Mazembe after 8 years at the club.
Singuluma had a colourful career at the Congolese giants were he won every major trophy on the continent.

Emmanuel Mayuka and Chris Katongo finished three goals apiece at the 2012 African Cup of Nations tournament.
The only other player to score five goals is Fwayo Tembo but that was at the CAF 2007 African Youth Championship in Congo Brazaville. Singuluma and Kalusha again share another record of scoring a hat-trick at major tournament and both came in 2009 and 1996 respectively.
On club, Singuluma’s achievement is unrivalled after he won three CAF Champions League medals at TP Mazembe.
He has has three CAF Super Cups as well as three CAF Confederations Cup.
Singuluma also featured at the FIFA Club World Cup twice and played in that final against Rafa Benitez’s Inter Milan.
The former Chiparamba Youth Product also helped TP Mazembe to seven Congolese league titles.
Singuluma has played for National Assembly and Zanaco in Zambia and had unsuccessful spell at South African side Bay United.
