New Highlands Park signing Collins Mbesuma has vowed that he will continue to score goals in the Premier Soccer League.

The reining Absa Premiership golden boot winner, penned a three-deal with the newly promoted outfit after leaving the now defunct Mpumalanga Black Aces at the end of last season.


The 32-year-old, who also won the top scorer accolade while at Kaizer Chiefs 11 years ago, is confident he will continue to hit the back of the net.

"I just have to work hard, but the supporters will see goals for sure. The important thing is the teem, we have to play as a team," Mbesuma said.

"I score everywhere, I score for my national team, when I was in Portugal [at CS Maritimo] I was scoring, it is not easy. I just have to work hard and do extra training. I think strikers don't do more, we have to practice. Practice makes perfect.

The Zambia international quickly dismissed any suggestions that he is even thinking of hanging up his boots, as he prepares to help keep Highlands Park in the Absa Premiership.

"Retire? I have many more years to play, I am not even thinking of retirement," the former Orlando Pirates forward added.

Mbesuma, who scored 14 goals last season, reiterated his desire to win more trophies.

"That is my aim as a striker [to win the golden boot] - every season is a challenge - and I want to win more as an individual and as a team. I want to continue where I left off last season," Mbesuma continued.

The burly forward was heavily linked with a move to Bloemfontein Celtic, but with Mbesuma eager to remain in Johannesburg he decided to join the Lions of the North.
