Kermit Erasmus made his Mamelodi Sundowns debut over the weekend as he came on as a sub in the MTN 8 last-eight clash against Bloemfontein Celtic.
The Port Elizabeth born striker recently joined Masandawana from Cape Town City and is already finding his feet at the club and has said that “It has been great and I am enjoying the vibe amongst the squad, everyone is free-spirited and that is how I am. I know most players from the national team and from other previous teams and that makes it easier to get along. I am very excited and happy to be here.”
During his spell with the Citizens last season, he made twenty-seven appearances and played in all competitions, he found the back of the net on fourteen occasions.
“For me personally, it’s to stay injury-free. That is the most important thing to me, if I can do that then I am sure we can achieve a lot as a team. I also came here to win trophies, you know, compete with the best teams on the continent. I also want to break the record of being the top goalscorer by trying to score thirty goals. A lot of people might think I am in over my head but with the players around me here, it is possible.
When I look at the quality of players that are around me, the likes of KK, Jali, Mshishi, George, Sirino, I believe that the goal of twenty to thirty goals is achievable, and if I can stay injury-free, then why not?” said Kermit
