Musonda is one of the more seasoned campaigners in the Premiership and has even featured prominently for Rise & Shine during the current campaign, making 18 starting appearances.

Musonda, an Africa Cup of Nations winner with Zambia, has already achieved a considerable amount in his career but still feels that he has unfinished business in the South African top flight.

“I know that people are obsessed with judging players based on age but for me I operate on how my body feels and right now I feel like I am at my peak," Musonda told KickOff

“I am sure I will even play on until I pass 40 as long as I am feeling this way.”

Musonda suggested the most critical factor at this juncture has been that he still has the desire to compete at this level. 

“I have been able to compete so well this season despite my age and that is a sign that says I can still continue.

“The most important thing is that I have been able to take care of my body so at the end of the day this age thing is just a number,” added the Zambia international.

“If I am able to put in the extra effort and be just as effective, then I will continue playing.”
