New Kaizer Chiefs recruit Morgan Gould is hoping he can bring some of his title-winning experience to Naturena as the team look to bounce back from a trophyless season
Gould signed for Amakhosi on a four-year deal this week, joining from SuperSport United where he tasted PSL title glory, and most recently Nedbank Cup success.
And while the centre-back concedes he will take time to find his feet in Soweto, he says fans will not have to wait too long before they get the very best out of him.
“I am obviously going to take things step by step. I want to win trophies with the Club. I want to bring something back to the Club, unite the fighting spirit that helped us to win a couple of leagues titles in my previous Club (SuperSport),” he told Chiefs’ official website.
“I am an easy going guy and I am close to all the guys. I am willing to work hard; if the guys work hard I will work twice as hard. The team for me comes first and I really want to win trophies with the team more than anything else.”
Looking forward to next season, Gould added: “We are all excited about next season and we cannot wait for preseason to start but our focus now is on the national team.”
Gould is currently in Rustenburg training with Bafana Bafana ahead of their 2014 World Cup qualifier against Ethiopia on Sunday, and while he admits they are expecting a tough test, he believes the team have what it takes to come away with the points.
“Look, it is not going to be easy but this is a time for us to do well. We need to go out and win both games against Ethiopia and Botswana. We owe this to the nation that has supported us through and through. I have bit of information on Botswana and we know what to expect when we meet,” he concluded.
