Komphela urges Mutizwa ‘to be more serious’


Golden Arrows coach Steve Komphela has urged striker Knox Mutizwa to be more serious about his game if he wants to score more goals.

The Zimbabwean international has been in fine form for Abafana Bes’thende this season netting 8 league goals so far, the same number of goals he scored last season.

Mutizwa also converted a penalty during Arrows 2-1 defeat by Black Leopards in Thohoyandou on Saturday.

But Komphela believes the 26-year-old is capable of achieving more only if he ups his game.

“He should have scored more (against Leopards). He needs to be more serious; he should have scored more. If he can be serious, he can go all the way,” stated Komphela.

“I told him in the dressing room that if he is too comfortable things don’t work but we wish him well and we hope he keeps scoring.”

The former Bafana Bafana mentor reckons that Mutizwa can go all the way and win the 2019/20 Absa Premiership top goal scorer award.

“He can because we are creating a lot of chances so he must take them,” added Komphela.

Arrows have scored 14 league goals so far and 8 of them come from the Zimbabwean marksman.
