Click through the images above to see which players accounted for a larger portion of their team’s goals than anyone else’s last season.
Pirates’ 29 goals throughout the league campaign would be a concern, considering that it was the joint sixth worst amongst their top flight competitors and it will be of even greater concern that Tendai Ndoro accounted for 12 (41.4%) of those and, without him, they would have scored just one more goal (17) than the lowest scoring team, Bloemfontein Celtic, who found the back of the net on just 16 occasions.
However, Celtic will be similarly concerned with Musa Nyatama’s five goals accounting for 31.3% of the team’s total haul for the season. Chippa United’s Rhulani Manzini, Cape Town City’s Lebogang Manyama and Polokwane City’s Rodney Ramagalela round of the top five in terms of player to team goals ratios, with the trio accounting for 29.6%, 27.7% and 25% of their teams’ goals respectively.
Elsewhere, Gabadinho Mhango (19.1%), Jeremy Brockie (19%), Siphiwe Tshabalala (17.9%) and Themba Zwane (15.4%) accounted for the highest portion of Bidvest Wits’, SuperSport United’s, Kaizer Chiefs’ and Mamelodi Sundowns’ goals respectively.
