Warriors marksman Knowledge Musona, who has been frozen out of competitive football by Anderlecht, has joined rivals KAS Eupen on trial.
Musona who had been linked with a move back to Mamelodi Sundowns in Mzansi is keen to stay in Belgium after it emerged he will be elligible for citizenship before the end of this year.
His four-year contract with Anderlecht runs until June 2022.
However, the forward has been earmarked for disposal this January window after he was deemed excess baggage. The Warriors skipper joined KAS Eupen in their training camp currently underway in Doha, Qatar, on Wednesday with the hope of impressing the 13th placed club and probably landing a good contract.
KAS Eupen confirmed yesterday that the Aces Youth Soccer Academy alumnus is trying his luck with them during their training camp.
“Zimbabwean international Knowledge Musona joins KAS Eupen’s training camp at the Aspire Academy. The 29-year-old offensive midfielder and attacker of RSC Anderlecht arrived in Doha on Wednesday evening and will be tested at KAS Eupen.
“As a national player of Zimbabwe, Knowledge Musona has scored 19 goals in 27 international matches. In the Jupiler Pro League, he played 112 matches for KV Oostende, scoring 41 goals and 18 Assists,” the club posted on their website yesterday.
He had been linked with a move back to South Africa with Sundowns but his South African agent, Mike Makaab, has always maintained that there was plenty of interest in Belgium.
“I will be travelling to Belgium this month to sit down with Anderlecht to discuss the way forward,” Makaab told the South African media early this week. “Knowledge needs to be playing, and we are going to look for a way to get him out so he can do that.
“There has been plenty of interest in Belgium, but it all depends on what happens with Anderlecht. We want to get him out, but he is a professional and if they say no, then he will see out his contract and he will keep working hard and wait things out.”
