Chiefs still prioritising Musona

Premiership

Musona is currently frozen out at his German Bundesliga side TSG 1899 Hoffenheim where club coach Markus Gisdol has no intention of using him this season.

The 24-year-old has recovered from the ankle injury that he initially picked up eight months ago while at Chiefs and which has seen him not play any competitive football since April.

Word reaching KickOff.com is that Musona has raised his voice about his need to play football again and wants to get going right away when the next transfer window opens in January.

Chiefs remain interested and have delayed signing several other foreign strikers that they have been offered.

Amakhosi have already been offered strikers from Ivory Coast and Uganda amongst others but they have chosen not to commit as their primary target remains the man who has scored 44 goals in 74 games over the three years that he has spent at Naturena.

The club has kept one foreign spot open.

With CAF Champions League football on the plate yet again in the new year – Chiefs understand their need to strengthen their squad which will be faced with a double-barrelled challenge of competing on the domestic scene and on the continent.

Hoffenheim have made an encouraging start to the German Bundesliga and are currently in fourth place after 10 games with 17 points – seven behind leaders Bayern Munich which has left Musona aware that he has scant hope of gate-crashing his way back into the team.

Europe will naturally remain the ultimate stage but he is aware of the dangers of completing a year without playing any football. If a move within Europe doesn’t materialise in January, making a return to Chiefs may be the best option under the circumstances.

Musona’s return to Chiefs fell through during the last transfer window due to the fact that he was against penning a long-term contract outside of Europe.

He spent the past season on loan at Chiefs from Hoffenheim.
