Football career

Musona started his football career at Manyame Football Club before moving on to join Haka United. His way to stardom kicked off at Aces Youth Academy which is well known for having produced some of the country's best and promising footballers such as Wisdom Mutasa, Khama Billiat and George Chigova.[1] Musona never played in the domestic league and made the move to Kaizer Chiefs of South Africa in 2009 straight from the Aces Academy.[1] Musona was an instant hit in the Super Diski scoring goals for chiefs and in the process attracted the attention of various European clubs. He was eventually signed by German outfit Hoffenheim where he did not replicate his outstanding performances at Amakhosi.

This saw him being loaned to Augsburg.[3] Musona made a comeback to Amakhosi on a temporary move which saw him featuring for the club for part of the 2014 season. Although Chiefs had registered their interest to have the player back on a more permanent basis, the striker eventually penned a two and half year contract with KV Oostende OF Belgium.[3] In May 2018 after interest from several clubs, Musona signed for Belgian club RSC Anderlecht.
