Speaking to Soccer Laduma in an exclusive interview in edition 963, the former Kaizer Chiefs striker said that people will criticise him, based on his weight, despite not knowing what extent he goes through to keep his fitness levels up.

“You know, it is not about my weight. People don’t realise that I look after myself very well. I am professional enough to look after my weight.”

“If Mbesuma is not scoring, they say it is about weight. When Mbesuma is scoring everything is okay and it is no longer about weight,” he told Soccer Laduma.

The well-travelled man currently leads the Absa Premiership top-scoring charts, having netted 13 goals in 22 matches thus far this season. 

The burly-forward, says he is unfazed about people’s comments about his weight.

“What people say doesn’t even go into my mind. I just keep on working. Elsa Storm is a real professional. She is a planner and she has contributed a lot on my fitness,” he told Soccer Laduma.

If Mbesuma finishes this season as the league’s top-scorer, he will become the first man to top-score in two different seasons in the PSL, having won the Lesley Manyathela Golden Boot Award in the 2004/5 season, with a record 25 league goals haul for Kaizer Chiefs.
