Zimbabwe striker sees Belgian loan extended

Zimbabwe international Knowledge Musona will spend the next season at KAS Eupen in Belgium after his loan was extended for another season, the club announced on Saturday.

“I’m very happy to be playing for Eupen in the new season. Here I find exactly the environment I need to play football,” Musona told a press conference.

“The decision to play another year for Eupen was very easy for me. Last season I found everything I was looking for here: playing time, trust, appreciation and the encouragement of the fans. That’s exactly what I need to be happy and play football well,” he added.

Musona moved to Eupen on loan in January after failing to play for Anderlecht in the first half of the season. He scored two goals in seven league appearances.

“Knowledge Musona is a very strong, complete and important player for us,” added coach Benat San Jose as Eupen began pre-season training.

“He has proven his qualities and shown that he suits us. It is a big step forward for the club to be able to start the season with such a player. Therefore, I would like to thank the club managers for bringing the negotiations with Anderlecht and Knowledge Musona to a successful conclusion. I am also happy for the fans that they will see Knowledge Musona again in the Eupen jersey next season.”
