Erasmus sparkled as Matsatsantsa beat the Urban Warriors 3-2 and crowned his superb performance with splendid goal in the first half that gave former Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Hans Vonk no chance.
Speaking to snl24.com/kickoff after the game, Erasmus said the Man of the Match award was the cherry on top of the cake as his goal was his first since he started playing in the Premiership.
“I had played three games previously and was dying to score against Ajax. Before the game Gavin Hunt told me not to worry about scoring as he was happy with the way I had been working during matches.
“This goal is something that I will cherish forever and I want to thank the coach and my teammates for their support and encouragement both during training and games.
“I used to feel bad about missing chances, but they always backed me, saying that I should not will drop my head,” says the Port Elizabeth born star, who was loaned to Supersport this season from Dutch team, Feyenoord, stating that he is now confident of making it in Holland next season.
“Now that we have beaten Ajax, we have increased our chances of winning the league title and all the guys are highly motivated. I, too, will be happy to be part of the team’s success this season before returning to Holland next season.”
“With my game improving and with me getting more chances of playing at Supersport United, I am sure Feyenoord are following my progress and will be able to give me a chance to break into the first team next season. I am already looking forward to playing in Holland next season,” Erasmus added
