SA – South Africa’s Premier League giant Kaizer Chiefs have been urged to bring Zimbabwean striker Knowledge Musona back to the club for next season.
Musona, who could soon come to the end of his stay at Anderlecht in Belgium following a decision he will not be part of the club’s plans for the 2020/21 season, could be back in the Absa Premiership if any of the potential suitors meet his financial demands.
While the Zimbabwean international is believed to be keen on an extended stay abroad as part of his careers plans, there has been a keen interest in his services from Mzansi.
“On the issue of Knowledge Musona, I believe that since he would be coming back from Europe he will demand a lot of money and will be looking for a good contract. So, whoever is prepared to pay will have a chance to get Musona,”
Former Chiefs midfielder Ntokozo Sikhakhane said, though Amakhosi are currently banned from signing players until after at least January 2021.
However, the Soweto giants have been in the process of having the FIFA ban overturned. Meanwhile, Mamelodi Sundowns showed interest in the forward during the January transfer window.
“Apart from contracts and money, with his style of play I would say he must go back to where he comes from. He must go to where he knows the culture and the management. The supporters love him there, and that’s at Kaizer Chiefs.
When he left for overseas the supporters were behind him and supporting him. All I will say is that he must go back home, there’s no place like home, which is Kaizer Chiefs,” he added.
The 29-year-old is left with two years on his contract with Anderlecht, and KAS Eupen is keen on a permanent deal for him, after he spent some time there on loan.
“But, also, Kaizer Chiefs must be prepared to pay him, because he will be coming back from Europe. I think Kaizer Chiefs this time must dig deep in their pockets and pay Knowledge Musona. With his experience now I believe that he can help the team going forward,” Sikhakhane concluded
