Leopards Offer Musonda Update After Deadline Day

Black Leopards are keen to see striker Mwape Musonda replicate the explosive form he was in last season to eventually claim the Golden Boot award.

There was plenty talk about the Zambian forward possibly joining a rival local team or heading abroad prior to the transfer deadline on Monday, but Lidoda Duvha managed to hold on to Musonda despite suggestions that the player was keen for a new challenge.

Reports linked the 28-year-old with clubs in Turkey, Saudi Arabi and China, with chairman David Thidiela confirming that Musonda was indeed for sale – but only at the right price, a figure said to have been around R5-million or more.

Tendai Thidiela has now told the Siya crew that they are relieved the window has slammed shut and Musonda remains their player. 

“We are happy now that the transfer window is closed and everyone can concentrate on the business at hand and getting us to a Top 8 finish,” the club official explained. 

“Musonda is still with us and I am confident he’s continue to score goals this season. We have reinforced all departments, hoping for a better and consistent supply for Musonda to better showcase his talent and getting to the 20-goal mark.”

Indeed Leopards have strengthened, with players such as goalkeeper Jonas Mendes, Thabo Matlaba, Thuso Phala, Cuthbert Malajila and Mogakolodi Ngele. 

Musonda, who played his first game for Leopards at the weekend, can now focus on his football and put the recent transfer saga behind him.
