Bafana Bafana attacker Luther Singh has responded to the talk that he has been lined up to replace Percy Tau at Anderlecht.
Last week, the Siya crew reported that Anderlecht have already made two approaches for the 23-year-old, who they have identified as a replacement for Tau, who has returned to his mother club Brighton and Hove Albion, after a brief loan stint with the club.
With Anderlecht set to make a third approach for his services at the end of the season, Singh, who is currently on loan at Paços Ferreira from Braga SC, has commented on the rumours regarding his future.
“Hearing these type of things gives me confidence, but I don’t let it get to my head, where I can feel like I’ve arrived. I take the interest in me as a compliment, but I still stay humble and I keep my feet on the ground as well,” Singh told the Siya crew in an exclusive interview.
“I feel like it’s always good as a player, when you hear things like that but, but it gives you the motivation to do more. Like if you have given this, then you can just get better if you continue working hard and getting better with every game and every training session.
“For me when I heard that there is so much interest in me, it gave me confidence to tell myself that I can achieve more than I thought I can and I shouldn’t limit myself and I can go over the point I thought I could reach,” Singh added.
The Stars of Africa development product has been in inspiring form for Paços this season, where he has scored two goals and provided three assists in 19 appearances in all competition.
Singh will be hoping to continue with his rich vein of form leading up to the 2021 Tokyo Olympics, where he is expected to form an integral part of coach David Notoane’s side.
