“I am excited for my new chapter with Al-Tai FC. I would like to thank my former team RSC Anderlecht for the opportunity they gave me. I also wish to express my sincere gratitude to KAS Eupen for the wonderful two seasons we spent together,” he said.
A Saudi Arabian journalist in response tipped Musona to excel in the league.
“My talented friend; you will be the hard number in Al-Tai Men’s Club, you will be an ambassador of your dear country in the Saudi Football league, which represents the strongest league of the Yellow Continent,” he wrote.
