Former Orlando Pirates star makes ‘GOAT’ claim

“I am the GOAT (greatest of all time) of Malawi.” the former Orlando Pirates star told KickOff.

“To be honest that’s how people take it. But to tell you the truth there are better players over there in Malawi.

“I’m hoping to become one of the best in Malawi, but when it comes to the latest achievements yes I’m the GOAT.

“I can’t say I’m on the same level as Messi though, Messi is on another level. I’m not sure who is the GOAT in the PSL though because every day there’s a new player who impresses.”
