Mamelodi Sundowns striker Kermit Erasmus has set a new goal target before hanging up his boots.
IT’S TAKEN ERASMUS 173 MATCHES TO DATE
Erasmus joined the ‘50-goal‘ club when he scored in Sundowns’ 3-0 DStv Premiership win over Stellenbosch FC on November 28.
It took the 30-year-old 173 matches to score his 50th goal – averaging a goal ever 3.5 matches.
Erasmus is currently enjoying time at his fourth PSL team.
Erasmus found the net 13 times in 25 league matches for Cape Town City in 2019/20, and has added two more since his arrival at the Brazilians this season.
Previously he scored 17 goals for Orlando Pirates and 15 for SuperSport United.
He also scored three goals in his first season in the Mother City back in 2018/19.
“It’s a good feeling! Hopefully, the next 50 (goals) come in fewer games. I am hoping to climb higher and to see where I will be when my time to retire comes,” Erasmus told the club’s website.
“Stats are very important as it shows the hard work you put in behind closed doors and the sacrifices you make to achieve goals that you set for yourself.”
Erasmus sits 14th in the list of the PSL all-time goal scorers.
He has some way to go to break into the Top 10 list – and even further to reach the current leader.
Erasmus also has 15 Bafana Bafana caps to his name and two international goals.
