“It’s an honor, it has not been an easy journey. To my teammates, I just want to thank them, the technical team and everyone behind the scenes. Everything we do behind the scenes is the reason why I scored a hundred goals.”

also became the all-time top goalscorer for Namibia after scoring against “As a striker I always had the dream of scoring goals because I also look up to players in Europe who score more than I did (players like Christiano Ronaldo).
It’s something that I’ve always wanted to do and to achieve. For more goals to come I just need to keep on doing what I was doing and keep on grinding.”
“The three years at Highlands Park was more about me being made into the striker that I am today, to deliver on big occasions and for big clubs like Sundowns.
They’ve also helped me in terms of being calm, experience wise and that’s something that I really thank Highlands Park Coaches for making me the player I am and getting an opportunity to play in one of the big clubs in Africa and to deliver on what I’ve worked on.”
