Musonda hopes to do more for Leopards


Even though he holds the all-time top goal scorer milestone at Black Leopards, Zambian international striker Mwape Musonda feels he still has a lot to offer.

Musonda with 58 goals is the all-time top goal scorer in Leopards history, having surpassed the record previously held by Mulondo Sikhwivhilu who scored 44 goals, at the end of last season.

The 28-year-old joined Lidoda Duvha from Golden Arrows in 2016 and has scored double figures in all the three seasons at the Limpopo Club.

“Well what can I say man, it is always feels great when you achieve milestones like this in your career, so yeah as an individual I feel happy and proud of what I have achieved because I know now someone has to do better than I have to beat that record ” he told FARPost.

“But honestly I feel like I have under-achieved, definitely not the number I am happy about, I feel like I could have done better,” he said.

The 2018/19 Absa Premiership top goal scorer with 18 goals also spoke on the contribution played by Sikhwivhilu to help him settle at the club.

“Yeah great guy, I never had a chance to play with him, but the numbers speak for themselves. He was the team manager when I joined Leopards and he is one guy who helped me settle down because it was really tough for me when I arrived and even now we still talk,” added Musonda.

The former Orlando Pirates marksman has also assured Leopards faithfuls that the team remains eager to fight to get out of the relegation zone when the League resumes.

“I feel like we have under achieved as a team to be honest because we have such great talent in the team to be fighting relegation every season. To me the team comes first, if I can score the goals that helps my team win trophies and achieve things, then I’m happy. So on that note, it really doesn’t excite me to score all those goals while the team hasn’t achieved anything to talk about but we will fight until the end.”

Musonda also scooped the 2017/18 GladAfrica Championship (then National First Division) Golden Boot award with 15 goals.
