Former Chiefs Target: Golden Boot Is A Difficult Thing At A Big Team

Lerato Lamola Discusses Goalscoring Pressure

By Kyle Smith - Mar 20, 2017 08:45 AM @The_Kyle_Smith

While discussing his aspirations to win the Absa Premiership Golden Boot, Golden Arrows’ Lerato Lamola has explained why it is more difficult to win the award with a so-called big team.

Chiefs Starlet: First Prize Was World Cup Qualification

Lamola, who fell agonisingly short of the award in the 2014/15 Absa Premiership, scoring one less goal than the winner, Moeketsi Sekola, has discussed why he thinks there would be a smaller chance of him challenging for the prestigious trophy if he had completed moves to the so-called big clubs that he was linked to in the past, including Kaizer Chiefs, Bidvest Wits and SuperSport United.

“To get a Golden Boot is a difficult thing at a big team,” he told Soccer Laduma. “It’s easier at the so-called smaller teams, because when I was at Celtic I was missing a lot of chances and could maybe have been the top scorer that season if I converted those chances.”

The 30-year-old went on to say that there’s less pressure on players to score at smaller clubs, which is what makes goalscoring so much easier.

“But, I missed those chances and I still had my confidence. You don’t get that at a big club, that’s why, in recent seasons, there haven’t been many top scorers from the big clubs. There’s too much pressure at those big clubs."

In the last five Absa Premiership campaigns, the Golden Boot has been awarded to players from Mpumalanga Black Aces, Free State Stars, Kaizer Chiefs, and Moroka Swallows (twice), meaning that, out of those five seasons, only one Golden Boot was awarded to a player from a so-called big team.

Every donkey is a Chiefs target, if Lamola was Chiefs target why did we allowed him to join a small team like Arrows?

Editor whats the latest in CAF CL Group Draw.Mamelodi Sundowns,Al Ahly,Etoile du Sahel & Zamalek are in pot1(most dominant teams).This means they won't play together for those zebra fans that don't know the meaning of pot1 in football.Pot2 consist of the 2nd best teams Esperance,Al-Merrikh,USM Alger & Al-Ahli Tripoli...It's another star coming to Yellownation!
