Collins Mbesuma has emphasised the importance of consistency
in his explanation of why Absa Premiership strikers fail to score as much as they should.
The Kaizer Chiefs legend used this season's leading Absa
Premiership scorer, Gabadinho Mhango, as an example to illustrate his argument –
pointing out that the Orlando Pirates star hasn't scored in his last three
"The problem with our strikers is they can score in two
or three consecutive matches, but go for four matches without a goal,"
Mbesuma told DailySun.
"Look, when last did Mhango score a goal? I think he
has now gone three matches without a goal. So that is why I'm saying it is not
easy to say who will finish as the leading scorer.
"A striker needs to be consistent. If you look at
European leagues, those guys score goals. But let's wait and see when the
season resumes after the coronavirus problem."
Mbesuma also went on to discuss Black Leopards striker Mwape
Musonda, who has struggled to replicate the form which saw him win last
season's Golden Boot.
"Pressure got to him to repeat his form of last season
and it does not work like that," he added.
"The combination Musonda had with his teammates of last
season isn't there anymore. Leopards keep changing its team, which is their
downfall. It's difficult for Musonda. I am sure he will bounce back."
