Kermit Hungry For More Silverware

Mamelodi Sundowns forward Kermit Erasmus is feeling refreshed after a short break and is raring to go ahead of the 2021/2022 DStv Premiership season.

The 31-year-old striker scored three goals in the league season, as well as three more in the club’s CAF Champions League campaign, and says he wants to build on his first season at the club.

After Sundowns won the league, Erasmus says he is now hungry for more silverware at the club.

“It’s always good to be hungry as an individual, but not only for myself but also for the team as well as for us to win things and to contribute again,” Erasmus told the Sundowns website. 

“We want to try to build on last season and to try to add more to the cabinet in terms of silverware.” 

“I’m excited and I can’t wait, it’s been a good start to pre-season and we are all looking forward to (the new season).”

“It’s important to take a break and recharge, sometimes the season takes a toll on you with all preparations and all the travelling week in week out.”

Erasmus took the opportunity to travel to the Netherlands to spend the break with his family.

“It’s always good to relax your mind from the game and spend time with your family. Some of us had a few niggling injuries to take care of so it was a good time for us to get that break and take care of those things that could help us play the season without it being halted for us.”

“I went to Holland to see my kids and spend time with them. We got to go to Disneyland and they showed me all the things they like to see. 

“It was a great experience for me being able to see them after such a long time. I’m happy, my mind is refreshed, mentally I’m good and physically I’m working on trying to get back to that level again and trying to be better than I was last season.”
