Former Orlando Pirates midfielder Ricardo Lourenco has joined Botswana Premier League champions Jwaneng Galaxy ahead of the 2020/21 season.

Lourenco was released by Pirates in July last year despite starring for their MultiChoice Diski Challenge (MDC) team as captain and showed real promise in the playmaker role.

The Bidvest Wits academy product also spent time in the Netherlands with PEC Zwolle before joining the Soweto giants but has now opted for a move across the border to reinvigorate his once-promising career.

Lourenco was announced as one of three new promising talents which included Ivory Coast U-20 midfielder Ali Sangare and former ASEC Mimosas striker Sede Dion on one-year contracts.

Having been founded in 2014, Galaxy has made a swift ascent as one of the most promising club's in Southern Africa after winning the Botswana top-flight last season with the league cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

As a result, Lourenco will feature in the 2020/21 CAF Champions League, as they start in the preliminary round scheduled for next month.
