I have five or more seasons before I retire – Mere
Platinum Stars captain Vuyo Mere feels unstoppable.
Mere, who has played in over 15 seasons in the PSL, says there’s still more mileage in his feet.
“I have five, six or seven seasons left in me,” Mere tells as he prepares to lead Dikwena one more time in the upcoming season.
“I want to get some silverware. It has been a while since I won anything with this team. If I can do well for Dikwena, I think we can get to greater heights. My aim is to play all the games this season. I know it’s not guaranteed because we have a lot of competition in the team but then that’s my personal wish. I want the team to win one or two trophies this season.”
Mere is confident that Dikwena have assembled a team that can do well this season.
“I am confident with the players that we have. I know nobody will give us a chance. What I know about this team is that we are a bunch of hardworking players. Nobody is a big player in this team. I think that will work for us. I think if we just work together, that will make us to move mountains. I have no doubt in the capabilities of this team. Everybody is working hard and everybody wants to prove to the coach that they can do the job for him,” said Mere.
Dikwena will welcome Maritzburg United in a season opener at the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace on Sunday afternoon. Mere says it’s critical that Peter Butler’s men get off to a positive start.
“It’s important that we get maximum points on Sunday because a good start is needed. We have to before we find ourselves looming at the bottom of the log. We know how it’s like down there. We felt it towards the end of last season and that’s not what we want to feel,” said the Dikwena skipper.
Kickoff is at 3pm.
