Nontshinga sets goals target
Bloemfontein Celtic striker Siyabonga Nontshinga has set himself a target of goals in the new PSL season.
Nontshinga joined Phunya Sele Sele at the end of last season from relegated Jomo Cosmos, having had a mixed season in which he struggled for goals, but won three Bafana Bafana caps.
He says that experience will hold him in good stead for the campaign with Celtic.
“I would like to score no less than 12 goals,” he says. “This will be my second season in the Premier League and I learnt a lot with Cosmos last year. I think that experience, even though the side did not do so well, was good for me.
“I know that Celtic are a side that create a lot of chances, so it will be up to me to put the ball in the back of the net. I don’t want to put too much pressure on myself, but 12 goals is about what I should be looking for I think.”
From a team perspective, Nontshinga says they are looking at a top four place.
“I think to finish in the top four or five and we see what happens after that. Moroka Swallows showed last year that if you can get on a good run then anything can happen. We have to believe that we have a squad of players who can do well in the League. And I would love for us to win a cup competition because I think the fans deserve that success. They have waited long enough.”
