Shiza Kichuya insists the team winning is more important than personal glory after Simba's 3-1 victory over Azam

Goal scoring speed for Simba attacking midfielder Shiza has decreased significantly compared to the last season when he was a goal machine and he nearly won the golden boot. In the 2016/17 season Kichuya finished with more than 10 league goals competing with Simon Msuva and Abdulrahman Musa for the top scorer award. But it is different this season, he has scored only six goals in 17 appearance for Simba and it has raised questions about his form infront of the goal.

Kichuy answered the critics and he mentioned the reason of him not scoring goals like last season, he said that his duties were changed for technical reasons so he should have the attackers do their job but also he can score when in good position to do so.

"The first objective is to win, the second, if I can score and help my team like that, it's also good," he told Kona ya Michezo.

"I play as a midfielder and when the attackers score it's we midfielders who supply the ball and feed them to score, so we all do our obligations."

"But whoever scores helps the team. If it's me, Okwi or somebody else it's the same importance if I score. For me, the victory is the most important, whoever scores is a bonus. 

"What I'm doing now is to see how to help the team get results and what our supporters need for now because there is nothing from us will convince them that we are doing a good job, only the title will justfy what we are doing in the pitch."
