Kaizer Chiefs youngster Ryan Moon says he hopes he can reach levels that Tottenham Hotspurs striker Harry Kane and Luis Suarez of Barcelona have reached at their clubs in recent years.
Moon has been stepping up for Amakhosi lately, scoring three goals in his last four matches for Steve Kompela’s side. The 21-year-old striker says he receives inspiration from Kane who has bagged 100 league goals in 138 appearances and Luis Suarez who has bagged 140 goals in 178 appearances for Spurs and Barcelona respectively.
“I watch a lot of different strikers. Here at Chiefs, I learn a lot from Bernard Parker, who regularly talks to me what to do in certain situations. Bernard played at the highest level in Europe and he mentors me a lot from what he learnt, which is fantastic,” said Moon.
“Otherwise, I look at all types of strikers because each has his own strength to learn from. The best examples to watch at the moment are of course Barcelona’s Luis Suarez and Tottenham Hotspurs’ Harry Kane. They are unbelievable. There is still a long road to go. I just need to continue to work hard and stay focused,” he continued.
Moon and his Kaizer Chiefs family welcome Lamontville Golden Arrows on Sunday afternoon at home in the Nedbank Cup and will hope he can put on a good show and help his team through to the last 16 of the competition.
