Musona's magic inspires Nale
Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs attacker Abia Nale loves playing alongside Knowledge Musona as he feels the striker helps improves his game.
Nale has spent more time in the black and gold than his
team-mate, but is learning from the talented Zimbabwe ace, who is in
his second season at the club.
The "Smiling Assassin" has already netted three times in all
competitions for Amakhosi since the Telkom Charity Cup and the winger
is eager to mirror his team-mates form in front of the posts.
"I have to improve on scoring goals and I'm learning a lot from Musona," Nale told Football365.co.za.
"He is so composed in front of goal, that's why in most cases when he gets a chance he is going to score for us.
"He is definitely a great player, someone who has helped improve
my own game and as someone who plays with him there is still a lot to
"He never wastes most of the opportunities he gets and in most
cases he can create chances for himself by taking on defenders when you
don't even expect him to."
Nale believes Musona will thrive this season, especially if he
receives the necessary support from his team-mates and the supporters.
"You can get something out of nothing with him. I think the way
he plays it just feels good to be his team-mate. I think he is getting
better and better. What he needs is support from all his team-mates and
the fans," he said.
Meanwhile, the 23-year-old is targeting a return to the Bafana Bafana set-up.
"The first thing I wanted to do was to play regularly at Chiefs
and I'm happy with my progress so far. My personal goal this season is
to be recognised by the national team selectors and hopefully that will
help me be recognised internationally, which is my long-term goal,"
