Erasmus hails teammates for surging goal-scoring form


Cape Town City striker Kermit Erasmus has given credit to his teammates for his rich vein of goal-scoring form since the resumption of football.

Erasmus has found the back of the net three times in four matches in the Premier Soccer League Soccer (PSL) Bio Bubble, taking his overall tally to 13 goals with two assists.

‘The Citizens’ have managed to seal three victories out of the four Absa Premiership matches, where they beat clubs such as Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates.

The 30-year-old hitman claims that his fine form infront of goal it’s purely down to the quality of service he receives.

“The team’s performance has been good, we’ve been working hard in the lockdown to prepare for the resumption of the league and we started really well,” said Erasmus.

“We showed a lot of courage and character in a lot of games we’ve played since we resumed the league and that’s why the individual performance of each player has been outstanding.

“Mine stands out because I’ve been scoring in the games we’ve won, but credit has to go to the rest of the team. Without my teammates it wouldn’t be possible for me to be in the position I was to score the goals I could,” he added.

With 12 league goals to his name, Erasmus is a challenger for the Golden Boot as he is only two strikes away from the pair at the top of the charts in Peter Shalulile and Gabadinho Mhango.

“Credit must go to everybody for fighting and being together. That’s what the team is about. I’m proud to call these soldiers my brothers,” stated the CT City striker.

In their next three matches, the Cape side, currently seventh on the log with 36 points will face Golden Arrows, Highlands Park as well as SuperSport United.

“We’re hoping and looking forward to what’s to come in the last three games and see what happens,” concluded Erasmus.
