Gumede's Hunger For Success Is Impressive

Good evening Buccaneers! Tshepo Gumede may have impressed on his debut for the club, but his interview after that encounter has since left me even more impressed.

From the offset, we knew that Gumede was going to be a fine acquisition for the club, but his wise words in the interviews have also made their mark.

“My goals? Look we have a realistic chance of defending and retaining the Nedbank Cup. My personal goal, more than anything else is to be part of the generation of players that help Pirates re-capture the Champions League glory,” he told the club’s official website.

It is refreshing to see such a young prodigy so hungry for glory, so willing to fight for silverware and so open about his desires for success.

This is one of the first things a player must have if he joins a team, as it shows he has a natural motivation that will carry him in the games.

Ghosts, it has been a while since a player has arrived and shown this much passion for the team so early on. Do you think Gumede will be a success?
