Mbesuma: They Have To Break My Record!

The winner of the PSL’s September/October Player of the Month award, Collins Mbesuma, insists that it is his colleagues that have a point to prove, not him.

Mbesuma, now 31, already has five league goals to his name so far this season, and was handed the award for his impressive form over the last two months.

The Zambian’s record of bagging 25 league goals in a single season for Kaizer Chiefs back in 2005/06 remains a record for the Absa Premiership, and his tally of 35 in all competitions from the same year is also unmatched.

Now, having seemingly regained his form under Muhsin Ertugral, Mbesuma has spoken highly of the Turkish head coach, saying that they understand each other.

Speaking to the media this week, the forward said, “He understands me very well, and I understand him. We worked together before at Arrows and he’s a good coach. If we follow his instructions I think we can go far.

Also, when asked whether he still had anything to prove in South Africa, the striker laughed and replied, “Not at all, the ones who have to compete with me are the ones who have to break my record!”

Mbesuma grabbed six goals in 29 league games last season and already has five in nine this year, and Ertugral will know that his striker’s form will be key if they are to achieve the top four finish that they are aiming for.
