The Cape Town City marksman has scored five goals for the Citizens in the Premier Soccer League, two in four games this season, his latest posted in the 2-1 home defeat to Kaizer Chiefs at Newlands Stadium a fortnight ago.
The 29-year-old former Orlando Pirates star has cemented his place at the top of coach Benni McCarthy’s formation. His goal is to be consistent and help win games for the team.
“I have no certain number of goals for this season, just to exceed the minimum the coach wants (10 or more),” he said. “I’m happy that I am scoring because that is how you are judged as a striker, by the number of goals you score. It’s good that the team is creating a lot of scoring opportunities for us strikers and we can only get better as the season continues and I believe the rest of the attacking force can convert the chances created.”
As for his return to the Bafana Bafana squad, Erasmus said: “I’m happy when I’m back in the national team, representing my country is always a proud feeling, being part of the squad. City have made it all possible and coach Benni is someone I’ve always idolised. He’s done it all and being able to feed off his knowledge and drive on a daily basis has made me a better player.”
