In what could be his last game for SuperSport United, Morgan Gould says he will be looking to repay the club’s faith in him by handing them the Nedbank Cup
The Matsatsantsa captain is reportedly preparing to join Kaizer Chiefs in the off-season, but before he does that he intends to sign off in style by helping United see off Tshwane rivals Mamelodi Sundowns in Saturday’s final.
“Winning will be good for me because it’s one of those things that as a player and as captain you want to have,” he told Pretoria News.
“It’s good to have one in the cabinet and say this is what we have achieved this season. At least we will look at it and say we have got something in the cabinet.
“It brings no greater joy to go back to the coach and say that this is for all the faith and confidence you’ve showed in me. I am giving you back a trophy.
“We will see what happens on the day. The coach knows the players will give their best for him and SuperSport.”
This weekend’s cup climax will also have an extra special flavour for Gould, with the encounter set to take place in his hometown of Soweto, at the Orlando Stadium.
“It’s one of a kind,” he added. “You can’t have a Pretoria Derby played in Soweto. Both captains - Gould and Teko Modise - are from Soweto.
“It’s going to be a memorable and a special one for me playing just around the corner from where I grew up. It’s going to be do or die.
“We are going to be gunning for one another. Everybody wants to go home victorious but at the end of the day there can only be one winner.
“As SuperSport, we are going to give it our best shot.”
