Thidiela reveals Musonda's next move


Black Leopards chairman David Thidiela is certain top striker Mwape Musonda will not be with the team come the start of the 2019/20 season.

The Zambian finished as the 2018/19 Absa Premiership Golden Boot winner after scoring 16 times in the league, and speculation continues over his future.

In new developments, Thidiela says there is a big possibility that the player will play his football overseas next season.

Asked if there were concrete offers on the table for the 28-year-old, Thidiela revealed he is now more likely to move abroad than to another PSL club.

"You know clubs like to deal with agents, they don't deal with me. Offers will be there don't worry. He is leaving. There are so many people who are working on this issue. Mabalethe isaka nje [They must just bring a sack full of cash] and we'll talk," Thidiela tells

"He is leaving the country, he is going. I'm confident he is going, to outside the country. He is also willing to get out of the country. I don't know yet which country but I will tell you. You know me, I don't have secrets, I don't hide anything. The only thing I will hide from you is how much that particular club will pay me for him, the rest I will tell you. Then next season I will sell someone else again, this is business.

"You see the likes of Hlompho Kekana? They are my boys, they all started here, [Tiyani] Mabunda, there are many... Rama G [Rodney Ramagalela], [Jabu] Maluleke... they are from here."

Thidiela admits the local interest in the player has waned.

"I don't know, they are not saying anything, they are not even asking us how much we want so we can't say they have failed to buy the player," he adds. "Maybe they don't want him, and I'm very reasonable."
