Pitso confirms interest in Musona


Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has commented on the possibility of signing former Kaizer Chiefs striker Knowledge Musona.

Sundowns appear to have set their sights on the Zimbabwean star as his contract at Belgian side Anderlecht could soon be terminated, according to reports.

Mosimane, speaking at Moses Mabhida Stadium after his side's 3-0 victory over AmaZulu on Saturday, admitted he would not hesitate to snap up Musona.

"Guys, where do you get this thing about Musona? But would you have Musona if he's available?" Mosimane asked.

"Yes of course, why not if he's available?

"He's the kind of player that I would take because I know he scores goal hey and he's a fighter. You know he's like Khama Billiat.

"He is strong, his attitude is right, he's a good player. So if we can get him, yes, why not? We would like to have him."

Musona, 29, made his name in the Absa Premiership with Amakhosi after signing as an unknown striker in the 2009/10 season.

He was the PSL's top scorer with 17 goals in 2010/11 before moving to the Bundesliga to join Hofffenheim.

Sundowns confirmed the release of former Bafana Bafana striker Tokelo Rantie on Sunday after he went AWOL for a month.
