Katongo: Don’t Condemn The Strikers

Golden Arrows’ newly-signed striker, Christopher Katongo, has refused to criticise the PSL strikers who have failed to show a consistent run of form in front of goal in recent seasons.

The Zambian international is famously remembered for scoring 15 goals in the first round of the 2006/07 campaign, going on to claim the Golden Boot award, despite not tasting any PSL action in the second half of the season, having joined Brondby IF in Denmark. It seems like not much has changed since the last time the former Jomo Cosmos man was on these shores, as the current leading goal scorer, Bernard Parker, is on a mere 10 goals in 22 league games.

Katongo told the Siya crew, You know, it’s two ways. You don’t need to condemn my fellow strikers. It’s either the defenders are doing their job properly or it’s the strikers who are not doing their job properly. Maybe the football has changed and the defenders are defending very well." 

"What I can say is that I think the defenders are good and maybe the strikers don’t have many chances to score goals. I don’t know what has been happening in the PSL in recent seasons, so I can’t condemn anybody for this. But there must be a reason why they are not scoring regularly in the PSL these days,” he continued.

The 31-year-old will be hoping to help Abafana Bes’thende overcome Kaizer Chiefs in a league clash on Wednesday evening, as they bid to move away from the bottom of the Absa Premiership table.
