Moon Targets Maponyane’s Chiefs Goal Record

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.
