'Im Still Going To Do It’ - Erasmus Still In For 30 Goal Mark

In the early stages of the 2020/21 campaign, Mamelodi Sundowns striker Kermit Erasmus set out a target of scoring up to 30 goals for the club and while that hasn’t materialized, the ex-Feyenoord attacker has stuck to his word. Check it out!

What’s the story?

The Sundowns attacker has never been short of confidence and is deemed to be one of the boldest characters in the local game today. In October last year, Erasmus told the Sundowns official website that with the star power behind him, he could reach up to ’20 to 30’ goals should he remain injury free.


Star Power

In the 2019/20 campaign, Erasmus netted 14 goals in 27 games for Cape Town City, a healthy goal return for football in the PSL. The former SuperSport United thus reasoned that he could well double that tally with the likes of Gaston Sirino, Themba Zwane and George Maluleka feeding him the ball.

However, that has not been the case for Erasmus this season. With niggling injuries throughout the campaign, the attacker featured just 26 times for the Brazilians, scoring six goals while assisting a further seven along the way.


Confidence Personified

That said, a fan on Twitter questioned Erasmus in bringing up his comments about scoring 30 goals, with the Downs man replying in the process.

With the supporter deleting the tweet later on, Erasmus’ replied by saying, “Yes, I didn’t, I’m still goin to do it, I’m preparing for next season already!”
