Goss Ready To Win Medals For Masandawana

Ricardo Goss feels he made the right decision to join Mamelodi Sundowns and has so far enjoyed the experience at the club.

Goss joined from now defunct Bidvest Wits, where he won plaudits for his performances last season.

Before signing for Wits, the 26-year old had featured for Real Kings in the National First Division, but it was as a junior player at Golden Arrows that Goss first made his mark.

He was a regular in junior national teams, and ‘graduated’ last month, as he made his Bafana Bafana debut against Namibia. He replaced Darren Keet in the second half of a 1-1 draw, and made a few impressive saves while keeping a clean sheet.

And while he is still awaiting his Sundowns debut, Goss says he is enjoying every minute at Chloorkop.

“It has been nice, I am enjoying every moment with the club and we have a great bunch of guys who are fun to work with,” Goss told the Sundowns website.

“I felt welcomed when I joined the club and it is still the same way and working hard.”

Goss knows it will be a challenge to win a starting berth at Sundowns, where he has to compete with Dennis Onyango and Kennedy Mweene, but he says the veteran goalkeepers have welcomed him with open arms and he hopes to learn from the seasoned internationals.

“Dennis and Kennedy have been cracking jokes all the time with us the new guys and have made us feel at home. I want to work hard and learn more from them.”

“I wanna get some silverware and being here at the club gives me an opportunity as I have not won any trophies and hopefully that will change.”
