Arrows hitman Mbesuma now means business

2011-08-03 00:00

PSL defenders and goalkeepers be warned: Collins Mbesuma has rediscovered his appetite for goals.

This much was revealed by the bustling Lamontville Golden Arrows hitman during an interview with The Witness at the weekend.

Mbesuma surprised all and sundry when he managed to score 11 goals for the Durban side despite joining midway through last season.

He had been out of action for six months after being released by Moroka Swallows.

After initially being given a six month contract, the bustling Zambian has been rewarded with a two-year deal following last season’s exploits.

“My confidence and form is back. I am looking to do better for the team in the upcoming season.

“Scoring goals is what I get paid for,” said the former Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns man.

The Zambian issued a stern warning to the opposition. “I believe that once Katlego Mashego and I form a telephatic understanding, we will be dangerous. What I like about him is his intelligence and maturity.”

Mbesuma would not be drawn into backing himself to repeat his 2005 performance at Chiefs, where he scored a sensational 35 goals.

“I really would not like to promise how many goals I will score in the upcoming season, as that would put me in unnecessary pressure.

“So long as I get the chance to play and score, that would be fine.”

He hasn’t ruled out a chance to return to Europe. His spells in England, Portugal and Turkey were forgettable.

“Of course I would like to go back there (overseas) because I believe I still have unfinished business there.

“But I won’t stress much about going back there for now, as I need to get down to business here at home.”
