He added: “I know I will be fighting for a starting place against some best players in the league, but I’m ready for the challenge. I just need to prove myself by banging in goals every time the coach gives me a chance to play.”
Mutambu who scored on his debut match for Stars against Equatorial Guinea, has six league goals on his name and believes that with the quality of players at Sofapaka, he would score more goals at his new station
