Musona an instant hit at Chiefs

kaizer_chiefsJOHANNESBURG One of Zimbabwes more promising young talents, Knowledge Musona has made an instant impact in the South African Premiership since joining Kaizer Chiefs during the off-season, but the striker promises his best is yet to come.

Musona, who joined the Phefeni Glamour Boys from Harare-based Aces Youth Academy, alongside countrymen Thomas Sweswe and Zhaimu Jambo, has scored three goals for the Soweto giants in four off-season tournaments in an emphatic announcement of his arrival here.
However, the 20-year-old striker says that he is still fighting for a regular jersey in the team, which has several other bright stars as well as a new coach, Serbian Vladimir Vermezovic.
I have settled well into the Chiefs family and my ultimate aim now is to get a regular slot in the team, said Musona on Wednesday.
We have very good players in the team and I know that becoming a regular will be very difficult, but that is my aim.
Coming from a virtually unknown team to one of the most supported clubs in South Africa comes with a lot of pressure, but Musona told The Zimbabwean On Sunday that he still felt at home in Naturena, and welcome by Chiefs hard to please legion of supporters.
So far I have received standing ovations from the clubs supporters, something that translates to a good welcome and would like to capitalise on that and contribute to more victories for the team, said the striker, who has represented Zimbabwe at both the Under 17 and 20 levels.
I do not feel under any pressure at all and will play my usual game, while also following the coachs instructions, as football is the same everywhere, he added.
When he left Zimbabwe, Musona had already banged in 10 goals in eight matches for Aces, but says that he will not set targets for his maiden season with Chiefs.
Targets put players under a lot of pressure and I would not like to do that to myself. I will just strive to play as hard as I can and the rest will follow, he said.
