League position not pleasing – Karuru


Black Leopards forward Ovidy Karuru insists the team has reflected on the last few results which has left them languishing second from bottom on the DStv Premiership.

Leopards returned to training on Monday following a short Christmas break and are preparing for their league match agaisnt Golden Arrows next week Tuesday.

Karuru who has started his career with the Limpopo side on a high note after scoring two goals on his debut match (in the 2-2 draw against Kaizer Chiefs) says he has put team goals ahead of his personal targets.

“For me it’s not about me, it’s about the group,” says Karuru.

“I just want the team to do well and for me if I can score more goals I think I have to do that so that I can help the team achieve their goals.

“What we have said as a group is that we are tired of fighting relegation or play-offs, we just want to finish at a respectable position, hopefully in the top 8,” he said.

The 31-year-old also admits that their current log position is not pleasing.

“Yeah it’s not pleasing because at the end of the day we lost seven points. We could have won against Chiefs, we could have managed the game against TTM and against Swallows we could have killed them in the opening 20 minutes because we were all over them.

“But it’s part of football, you win some and you lose some and we just have to raise our heads and keep on going and pushing each other,” he added.
