TANGA: FEISAL Salum of Azam has set target on the golden boot as he tails a goal behind Simba’s forward Jean Baleke.
Feisal made the remarks just after banking his fourth Mainland Premier League goal during their 1-0 win against Coastal Union at Mkwakwani Stadium in Tanga on Friday.
Feisal has indeed proven his class this season, after lodging four goals in five matches he played.
Following the victory, Azam annexed 13 points from five matches to take helm of the log, leapfrogging Simba who are a point behind with a game in hand.
“I aim high and winning the golden boot is my target. I am here to see my side having a successful season. I cannot say how many goals I will score this season, but I will do my best,” Feisal affirmed.
Commenting on their Friday’s performance, he noted it was tough match and acknowledged Coastal Union’s squad quality.
“It was not an easy match but we are thankful to God we won. We have generated convincing results which has helped us to keep climbing up the league ladders,” he said.
The outcome was rather a bitter pill for Coastal Union, who are yet to celebrate victory in the unfolding season making it a poor start for coach Mwinyi Zahera.
They remain glued on 15th place with two points in the bag from five assignments and have suffered three defeats plus two draws in the process.
The Tanga-based club are in the category of four teams (Namungo, Mtibwa Sugar and Tanzania Prisons) which continue to search for their first maximum points of the campaign.
All these packed together signifies that the season is tough with each team putting on serious face to get nothing less from three points in each fixture they are set to play.
