Musona Join Belgian Giants Anderlecht

Anderlecht have beaten Standard Liege to the services of Zimbabwe Senior men’s football team, the Warriors Captain Knowledge Musona.

Musona penned a four-year deal Wednesday.

The former Kaizer Chiefs forward has been in fine form for KV Oostende in Belgium for the past two seasons.

The 26-year-old has had another fine season with KV Oostende as he scored 10 goals and got six assists from the left wing, and his form has not gone unnoticed by the league's big boys.

The KV Oostende forward was last week reported being on the verge of a move to 10-time Belgian champions Standard Liege after his agent Mark Makaab announced that a big European summer move was imminent for the talented Zimbabwe captain.

While initial reports from South Africa were linking the former Kaizer Chiefs hitman with a move to Standard Liege, it has since emerged that the 27-year-old attacker has joined giants Anderlecht.

Anderlecht are now owned by former KV Oostende chairman Marc Coucke and the ties between the two clubs also seen another key player in Croatian defender Antonio Milic being heavily linked with a move to the Brussels outfit.

In fact, Milic completed his move to Anderlecht from KV Oostende on a four-year deal on Tuesday with the Belgian publication Nieuwsblad reporting that Musona was expected to follow suit.

KV Oostende have already acquired Albanian striker, Sindrit Guri (24) to boost their attacking force in preparation of Musona’s departure.

Musona got his 2017-2018 season with KC Oostende off to a good start which reportedly attracted interests from big clubs in Germany and Italy before he was sidelined for more than three months with a hamstring injury.

The Zimbabwean star, however, enjoyed a solid finish to his campaign and was at the weekend on target again as he inspired KV Oostende to a 3-1 win over Royal Antwerp in their final playoff match of the season on Saturday.
