Musona quashes move reports
Johannesburg - Knowledge Musona has quashed reports suggesting he is set to move abroad following a bid for his services.
The Kaizer Chiefs ace was voted the top striker of the Telkom Knockout tournament, beating off competition from team-mate Sthembiso Ngcobo and the Orlando Pirates duo of Chiukepo Msowoya and Ezenwa Otorogu.
After accepting his prize, Musona denied reports claiming he is set to secure a switch to Russia, despite several pundits predicting a move overseas is the young Zimbabwean's immediate destiny.
"There is absolutely no offer for me from abroad," he said, before adding there is plenty he still has to achieve with Amakhosi.
"Winning the league title has always been on top of my wishes when the season started and I want to continue working hard to help my Chiefs win it," he said.
"I'm very happy with the award and it's a great honour and a big thank you to my team-mates, the technical staff and supporters.
"We are doing well at the moment but the most important thing is consistency. The league is a marathon and we are gradually getting there."
Meanwhile, goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune, who picked up the best gloveman award on Tuesday afternoon, was delighted that Chiefs managed to keep a clean sheet in every game of the competition.
"This year's cup was in my opinion tougher than the 2007 - 2008 season (when he won the same award) and to be able to go through four games without conceding a goal is a remarkable achievement not just for me.
"Also credit to Arthur Bartman who played against Free State Stars in the quarter-final and he kept a clean sheet, my defence have been brilliant throughout and I must say thanks to them and the entire team and technical staff as well as the fans."
