Kaizer Chiefs forward Samir Nurkovic has set his sights on winning the Premier Soccer League (PSL) Golden Boot this season.
Nurkovic has already managed to find the net on eight occasions in the league and is currently two goals behind joint top-scorers Orlando Pirates forward Gabadinho Mhango and Bongi Ntuli of AmaZulu and one goal behind Highlands Park’s Peter Shalulile.
The Serbian forward insists that he will continue to work on reaching his objective of finishing the campaign as the leagues top scorer.
‘Okay‚ it’s a very good competition about the goal-scorers‚’ Nurkovic told Times Live.
‘I’m very happy to have somebody to chase. We’ll see. I’m going to try my best and score as much as possible.
‘But‚ like I said a couple of times before‚ the team comes first. If the team is winning than the individuals will also get something. But as a striker‚ of course I would like to be a top goal-scorer at the end of the season.’
Nurkovic is relishing to chance to get his name back on the scoresheet when they welcome Cape Town City to the FNB Stadium on Sunday after returning from suspension.
‘I’m looking forward to that game against City and will be hoping score some goals‚’ he added.
‘First of all you have to respect the opponent. We’ll play our game and see. They also have good players‚ so we’ll see.’
