THERE is no more sought-after a commodity in South African football than a striker with a nose for goal.
Knowledge Musona was a rare discovery – spending a brief but profitable spell with Kaizer Chiefs – and Premier Soccer League clubs will have their interest piqued by the fact he has a younger brother allegedly following in his footsteps.
Local papers have already described the 16-year-old high school pupil who plays at the Aces Youth Academy, from where Chiefs signed his elder brother, as a “young sensation”.
Walter Musona was picked to play for Zimbabwe’s Under-20 side in their abortive African Youth Championship qualifier against Angola and made his debut as a second-half substitute in the first leg earlier this month.
He was supposed to play again in the return match this weekend but Zimbabwe did not have money to buy air tickets for their team to travel to Luanda for the return game.
“Musona is still learning the ropes. However, he showed potential to become a complete player,” said Zimbabwe Under-20 coach Jairos Tapera.
He has already had trials at English club Chelsea and Ajax Cape Town. By Sbue
