Mbombela- Mpumalanga Black Aces striker Collins Mbesuma
feels he was not given a fair chance to prove his worth by former PSL clubs he
Mbesuma, who first made a name for himself at Kaizer Chiefs
eleven years ago, has had a tremendous 2015/16 Absa premiership campaign in
front of goal.
The Zambian international forward is on the verge of
clinching his second Lesley Manyathela golden boot as he is leading the goal-scorer
list with 14 goals, with only two league games remaining.
Despite being criticised for being overweight and not living
up to expectations at Orlando Pirates, Mamelodi Sundowns, Golden Arrows and
Moroka Swallows, the veteran goal-poacher believes he was not given a fair
chance to prove his worth.
Mbesuma said football is about team work instead of putting
all the focus on one individual.
"It is not only focused on one individual player but
the whole team,” said Mbesuma.
"So, most teams I played for didn't give me a fair
chance to prove myself.
"They gave me at least a season to do my job and I was
playing around 10 games and scoring around 6 to 7 goals in the season.
"But they expected me to score 25 goals in those few
games played as I did at Chiefs.
"How can I score 25 goals in one game? I think I didn't
fail at any team I played for.
"I have a good record in the PSL."
Mbesuma will be looking to add to his tally when Amazayoni
face SuperSport United in their next league game next week Wednesday.
