Musona finally scores as Chiefs win


JOHANNESBURG — Knowledge Musona scored his first goal for Kaizer Chiefs in his return season as Stuart Baxter’s men defeated Mariztburg United 2-0 at the FNB Stadium in a South African Premier Soccer League (PSL) clash on Saturday evening.


George Lebese was the man who put further pain on Ernst Middendorp’s side by netting with his first touch of the game as he came off the bench.

There was an early golden chance for Musona to open his PSL account. He played a one-two with his Zimbabwean compatriot Kingston Nkhatha, but his casual shot was saved by Mariztburg keeper Shu-Aib Walters from close range, Musona should have netted with the KwaZulu-Natal side at his mercy.

In the 24th minute Mariztburg’s Ryan De Jong handled the ball just on the edge of the box. Chiefs winger Siphiwe Tshabalala saw his free kick attempt from that set-piece narrowly go high of goal. A minute later the Bafana Bafana winger unleashed a left footed long range shot which just missed the target.

The visitors had a glimmer of hope when Ruben Cloete pounced on a rebound in the 36th minute and whipped a cracker of a shot which unfortunately missed the target with Khune well beaten.

A minute later at the other end Chiefs opened their account. Tshabalala saw his deflected shot come off the post, but Musona was on hand to finish it off as he scored his first goal in the colours of Chiefs in his return season.

Five minutes into the second half, United had a half chance when Ashley Hartog swung in a sweet cross into the box which found Terrence Mandaza, but the Zimbabwean headed it straight into the hands of a well-positioned Khune.

On the hour mark, Rheece Evans thought he had levelled matters for his side when he connected with a cross from the right flank. He timed his jump to perfection but saw his header shave the outside roof of the net.


  1. Putting his name on the scoring calender is just what the Zimbabwean hit man needs to regain his glory after a disappointing season in Germany. Musona as young as he is still has a lot of time 2 shine and once again prove he is Bundasliga material. I think his 1st move was rushed and inexperience haunted him during his stay in German. This time around Musona’s manager must play his cards well and see to it that the talent inside Knowledge Musona does not end in South Africa but should be seen in other competitive destinations like the English Premier league or Laliga in Spain. Musona you have yet another chance, it’s your time to shine.

  2. Musona is good at absa league where his given space not european soccer thats why he failed to make it and his nolonger a youngster bhora is not like police force or military where someone is refered as youngster at 25years
