Musonda keeping options open
Absa Premiership top scorer Mwape Musonda says he will only move to a bigger club if he is guaranteed first-team football.
Black Leopards striker Musonda scored 16 goals in the league to help Lidoda Duvha secure their top-flight status. And the Zambian international, who has been linked with a move to Kaizer Chiefs, says he is open to a move, but not at the expense of regular playing time.
"I will not say for now but if someone calls me I will pick up the phone," Musonda told Kickoff.com.
"I can't take myself to anyone, obviously they have to call, and then obviously when they call I will pick up the phone. I mean sometimes it's not about just making a move. You have to look on both sides, are you gonna play?
"Obviously then the money comes after, but then what's important is that you are happy. You play football because at the end of the day it's about football. These other things come after. Obviously after you work hard a lot of things will just come naturally. There's no way you will do well and then not get rewarded, it's not on. So once you do well, obviously you live very well."
The 28-year-old believes he has served the Thohoyandou club well and would leave with the 'chairman's blessing'.
"I think that's something that you guys will find out about soon. I'm not gonna put it out there but what I know is that I will be happy to stay here, but if something comes up again, there's always the option to leave, because we all want to grow.
"I feel like I have delivered well for the past three years so I think even if I had to leave I would be going with my chairman's blessing. For now I'm there, we will see what comes up next season."
When asked if he still had a contract with the club he said, "Yes I do."
