MANCHESTER Cityâ€™s Benjani Mwaruwari has struggled for goals since his January move from Portsmouth, but hopes to finish the season with a few more strikes.
Striker Mwaruwari had scored 12 goals for Portsmouth in the first half of the season before moving to Manchester City.
His permanent move from Fratton Park, worth up to Â£7, 6 million, was confirmed in February after a frustrating transfer saga.
Since then, the Zimbabwean hitman has struggled to reproduce his scoring touch, but netted his second goal for Sven Goran Erikssonâ€™s men on Sunday â€” against Pompey no less.
Thus, the forward has only had one goal to celebrate, as he refused to rejoice against his former employers after capping the 3-1 victory.Â
Now that heâ€™s settled into the City side, though, Benjani hopes to add a few more to his season tally.
â€œIt was nice to get that first goal at home and Iâ€™ve been looking for that,â€ the 29-year-old admitted. â€œIâ€™m getting there slowly and it would be nice to get a few more goals before the end of the season.
â€œIâ€™m very happy and the team are getting used to me playing up front on my own.
Iâ€™m happy with the support Iâ€™ve had so far.
â€œEveryone has been great, even the lads in training keep on saying it will be okay, so hopefully in the next game Iâ€™ll score again.
â€œIâ€™m improving and it was probably my second best game for City so I will have to play like that as many times as I can.â€
Benjani says he will continue following his instincts to add to his tally and will work hard to surpass his performance next season.
He said his teamâ€™s remaining games wereÂ important as they will determine Manchester Cityâ€™s fate in Europe. â€” Goal.com.
