I want to beat Kagere in race for Golden Boot – Mhilu makes bold statement

Kagera Sugar forward Yusuph Mhilu believes he can beat Rwandese striker Meddie Kagere to the Tanzania Mainland League Golden Boot.

The striker has scored 11 goals this season as compared to his competitor who has managed to find the back of the net 19 times. 

With 10 matches remaining before the league concludes, the former Yanga SC striker believes he can realize his target.

“I have set the target to net more than 20 goals this season and I believe I can achieve that bearing in mind that on a good day you can score even four goals in a single match,” Mhilu told Daily News.

The Sugar Miller has also revealed why he left the 27-time-league champions for Kagera.

“Before, I used to get playing minutes when the team was under the tutelage of Zambian George Rwandamina but after his departure, I was told  I could not fit in Zahera’s philosophy and that is why leaving was the best option for me.”  

Simba SC have stated they are intending to help Kagere break the record for most goals in a season currently held by former Yanga SC striker Mohamed Hussein who scored 26 goals 24 years ago.

“We want to put in place good mechanisms which will see Kagere breaking Hussein’s record by giving him more playing time in the remaining matches and I believe that he can achieve that target.”
