Knowledge Musona has hinted on his plans for the future, as the striker is linked with a move away from his current club during the transfer window.
The Zimbabwean senior national team captain spent the second half of the season with KSC Lokeren, having been loaned to the club from RSC Anderlecht in Belgium in January.
The 28-year-old has been linked with a move away from Anderlecht, where he has not enjoyed regular game-time, since joining the cllub from Belgian side KS Oostende last year.
Some media reports have even suggested that the forward could be back in the PSL with his former club Kaizer Chiefs, although such rumours have been dismissed by the player’s representatives.
Musona has admitted to wanting a move away from Anderlecht, and has confirmed that he will make a decision regarding his future after the Africa Cup of Nations.
“At the moment, I am not thinking about it (returning to Anderlecht). I will think about it after Afcon. Last year, I did not play that much and, honestly, I wasted a year of my playing career. I did not enjoy it because of the way I was treated at the club. When you are a football player and you go into a team and you are not given a chance, it is always difficult to look forward to the next season because you don’t know what the people are planning for you. That is something I have to think hard about after Afcon,” Musona told Zimbabwe’s NewsDay Sport.
Musona and his Warriors teammates are in Durban for the COSAFA Cup tournament that is currently underway.
“At the moment, it is my time to enjoy playing for the national team where people appreciate and love me, where I play with a free spirit and a free mind because I know that people from my country love me. It’s always good to play when you feel that people love you when you play for them, and playing for the national team are the moments that I can safely say I feel proud of, because when I come and wear the jersey there is not much criticism. There is criticism, yes, but it is 90% people loving me against 10%. Where I am playing now (at Anderlecht), it’s vice versa so it’s something that I’m thinking like, okay, is it good for me to go back there and look forward to the new season or look for another club because I may never know what they have planned for me for the next season? I have to think about it after AFCON, but for now, this is my happy place,” added Musona, as quoted by the Zimbabwean publication.
Musona is still contracted to Anderlecht, having penned a four-year contract at the start of his deal.
