"I Grew Up Supporting Kaizer Chiefs And I Still do."Victor Letsoalo

After scoring a brace in a win over Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday, Royal AM striker Victor Letsoalo proclaimed his intention to win the DStv Premiership top goalscorer award this season. 

Letsoalo was named Man of the Match at the FNB Stadium and is aiming for further individual accolades. 

Letsoalo tells, "I grew up loving Kaizer Chiefs and I still do." 

"However, I had a job to do for my team, and that's what Royal AM pays me to do. "I always like playing against Kaizer Chiefs, and I'm glad I scored again on Saturday." 

Last season, Letsoalo scored 11 goals and added three assists in all competitions for Bloemfontein Celtics.

This season, the Bafana Bafana striker has also set an aim of winning the top goalscorer award. 

"Winning the top goalscorer award is definitely something I want to do this season," Letsoalo continued. 

"I'm off to a good start this season. This has increased my confidence in my ability to perform well and score more goals."

The DStv Premiership season 2021/22 is already underway, and the fight for Mzansi's best goal scorer is heating up. 

While it's still early, it's preferable to have already discovered the back of the net rather than waiting. 

Will Bradley Grobler of SuperSport United keep his Lesley Manyathela Golden Boot?

What appeared to be a promising start for Stuart Baxter's second period at Kaizer Chiefs has soon devolved into loose and muddy territory, as fired-up players have struggled to keep up. Royal AM took advantage of a poor performance with a 4-1 DStv Premiership defeat on Saturday. 

Chiefs were put under pressure after goals by Victor Letsoalo in the 34th and 66th minutes. In the 74th minute, Sifiso Hlanti's deflected free-kick handed Amakhosi a lifeline. 

In the 76th minute, Chiefs substitute Sibusio Mabiliso sent the ball into his own net. By the end of the game, AM had Chiefs chasing shadows, and replacement Mfundo Thikazi scored a humiliating fourth in the 95th minute.
