Dominique Malonga has officially parted ways with Cavalry FC.

Malonga, 32, signed with PFC Lokomotiv Plovdiv in Bulgaria’s top tier over the weekend. The journeyman striker was on the bench for the club’s 2-0 league win over Vitosha Bistritsa this Saturday.

Malonga led the Cavs with 11 goals in 26 matches in 2019, helping the side to Spring and Fall season titles and earning a player of the year nomination at Awards 2019.

Malonga was born in Châtenay-Malabry, a suburb of Paris, France, but represents the Republic of Congo at the senior international level. He made the jump to professional football in 2007 with Serie A side Torino FC before stints with AC Cesena, L.R. Vicenza Virtus, Real Murcia in Spain, and Scottish club Hibernian FC, where he became a cult hero scoring 17 goals in 43 appearances.
