Erasmus: Who Inspired My Goal Celebration

Kermit Erasmus scored his debut goal for Mamelodi Sundowns at the weekend and the Bafana Bafana international opened up about his goal celebration and his hopes for the season with the Brazilians.

Erasmus got on the scoresheet in Sundowns’ 3-0 win over Kaizer Chiefs at the FNB Stadium over the weekend, picking right up where he left off last season when he finished the campaign with 14 goals in all competitions for Cape Town City.

“I am happy to get off the mark, a good start for me, first game, first goal. I just want to keep adding to the tally and take it one game at a time. The league is a marathon, not a sprint as we all know and hopefully, we gel as a team and keep getting better,” Erasmus said on Sundowns’ official website.

“Stats are important in the game and unfortunately, as a striker, you are judged by the number of goals you score and not by your performance. Scoring for me is important, it helps me contribute to the team and win games. I want to continue doing that, if not, I want to help where I am needed, assisting, defending, and in the attack."

The 30-year-old also had an eye-catching celebration to go with his goal and he’s since explained the meaning behind it.

“The celebration was inspired by my nephew, I saw him doing his favourite dance and I told his father that I will do the dance when I score the first goal for Sundowns. When I was doing the celebration it felt good knowing that they were watching at home.” 

Sundowns could trim the squad, here are the players in danger:
