Cape Town - Former Kaizer Chiefs superstar Knowledge Musona believes the Absa Premiership is the strongest league in Africa and aids the development of Zimbabwe players.

Musona spent three seasons at Chiefs in two different spells while managing 27 league goals for the Soweto giants.

He is currently plying his trade for Anderlecht in Belgium's top flight though he spent the second half of the season on loan at Lokeren.

The Mighty Warriors ace is set to be a key performer when his national side take part in the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Egypt.

Nonetheless, the Norton-born star has been full of praise for the PSL.

Speaking to reporters, he said: "I believe it is the strongest league in Africa.

"It develops players from Zimbabwe and gives them the opportunity to showcase themselves in Africa.

"Some of them are in clubs that are playing in the Champions League. It shows that it is a strong league.

"With us qualifying and topping a group that included DR Congo, and playing with the players from South Africa, it shows the PSL is a strong league with quality.

"Thanks to the PSL for giving us the opportunity to showcase our talent and be seen around Europe.

"We are so grateful for South Africa accommodating us to play here and giving us the opportunity to go abroad."
