Moon Targets Maponyane’s Chiefs Goal Record

Ryan Moon Has Set Himself A Target At Kaizer Chiefs

By Soccer Laduma - Feb 08, 2018 12:06 PM
You can’t accuse Kaizer Chiefs’ young striker, Ryan Moon, of a lack of ambition… After scoring three goals in four games he’s taking aim at Marks Maponyane’s Amakhosi record.
 
 
The 21-year-old goal poacher has four goals to his name for the Amakhosi following his move from Maritzburg United back in 2016, and he’s eager to keep adding to that total as the club goes in search of silverware.
 
Ryan, the younger brother of former Bafana Bafana international, Bryce, is not short of confidence after becoming his side’s joint top scorer this season and has high hopes for himself at Naturena.
 
Speaking to the club’s official website, Moon revealed his ambitions with the Glamour Boys and touched on why three of his four goals have been scored with his head.
 
He said, “I definitely want to win trophies with Kaizer Chiefs. The goalscoring record at Kaizer Chiefs is in the hands of Marks Maponyane with 85. That’s something I look at to beat.” 
 
 
And why the aerial prowess? He added, “I often practised as a young kid in the backyard of our house with my father and my older brother Bryce. We used a balloon. That’s how I started acquiring the right technique to head the ball. Of course, over the years, that was improved at training.”
 
Moon is likely to start for Chiefs against Golden Arrows in the Nedbank Cup this weekend as he looks to make it four goals for the season in all competitions.
 
Maponyane's record will take some beating, with the former South African international scoring his 85 goals between 1981 and 1991.

You can make it boy...just keep on bagging them goals! Have courage and always know that, mamloti sunflowers are as edible as orlando pies at any given day..AND dont listen to parker for he will tell you that, the best way to score is to dribble the goalkeeper and never shoot at goal-posts...coz you might miss by inch.(That is why he has only scored less than 30 goals since joining Chiefs)

85÷10 = 8.5 goals per season, Maponyane was nothing short of being a hornless cow.

@wash & wear, Castro is as good as players around him, he is not going to get the same service he enjoyed at Downs. I am sorry to say the goal Castro scored might be his last as a fau player.

@Vongani!, the goal he scored last year was a lucky goal. Opponents' defence didn't contest.

Wish you luck but sorry to disappoint you Moon as under Mr defensive komphela it will difficult to reach your target but under a new coach who will field more attacking players will easily be possible as you proved to be good in front of goal.

The potential is there as long as the coach can field you.
