Despite seeing his side exit the CAF Champions League, Kaizer Chiefs defender Morgan Gould was delighted with his spectacular goal in their 2-0 second leg win over AS Vita Club this past Saturday.

Chiefs exited the Champions League competition 3-2 on aggregate after losing the first leg 3-0 away from home.

Gould scored the second goal in their victory on Saturday, and what a goal it was as the defender expertly volleyed the ball home form the edge of the box.

Gould, although, disappointed by his team’s exit from the CAF Champions League competition, said he does feel special after finding the back of the net and as a result his confidence is growing.

“All the goals are the same. A goal is a goal, be it a fluke of a goal or a goal scored by a regular scorer. That is how football goes. It is of course special to be on the score sheet,” said Gould.

“The confidence levels sky rocket when you score a goal.

“That one was an added bonus because it was a beauty.

“Unfortunately even though we won the game it was not enough to take us through to the group stages of the Champions League.”

Gould added that they are looking to bounce back from the disappointment of the CAF Champions League exit with a solid winning performance against relegation threatened Golden Arrows in the Absa Premiership on Wednesday.

“Football is a funny game. We gave it our all but I guess we didn’t do enough to advance in the (Champions League) tournament,” added the Chiefs defender.

“We are emerging stronger from this disappointment.

“The game against Arrows is one of the important games for Chiefs this season.

“It is going to be tough especially because they want points to survive relegation. We have to switch over from CAF to the league.

“We are focusing on our approach. We know their strengths and weaknesses and I am sure they know the same about us. It is going to be a mountain to climb for us just like in any other game.”
