Tower Delighted With First Season

Kaizer Chiefs defender, Erick ‘Tower’ Mathoho, says that his first season at Naturena has been beyond his expectations, expressing his delight at his debut campaign.

The 23-year-old joined the Amakhosi as a big-money transfer from Bloemfontein Celtic at the beginning of the season and was expected to take time to settle into the squad.

However, following Morgan Gould’s early season injury Mathoho was thrust into the club’s first team, coming on in leaps and bounds and earning himself a call-up to Gordon Igesund’s Bafana Bafana squad.

Mathoho told Chiefs' official website, “The season exceeded my expectations. It is a feeling you can’t put into words when you win trophies with the club you followed as a small boy... and I am sure I speak for all the guys in the team because we love the club more than just wearing the jerseys.

“Winning is a culture at Kaizer Chiefs but I never expected to win a double in my first season at Naturena.

“I remember when we met in Potchefstroom for preseason all we were talking about was reclaiming the glory days and to bring silverware to the club, the rest is history.

“There was a lot of talk in the media about where I was going to play my football but the hype never got to me. I knew there was one destination for me, Naturena.

“My stay here has been awesome from day one. I am forever grateful to my previous club for paving the move and the club for believing in my talent.

“Winning the league has motivated us all and we can’t wait to meet for the new season. There will be new goals next season as we will also be playing in Africa. I am also hoping to feature more in the national team next season.”
