Kermist Erasmus joined Orlando Pirates Football Club on July 23rd 2013 amidst much speculation about his move from his former team SuperSport United.

The dazzling forward is arguably among the best forwards in the country with an illustrious career under his belt.

Erasmus who was born in the windy City of Port Elizabeth re-united with former teammates Daine Klate and Thandani Ntshumayelo (at Pirates) with whom he played at SuperSport United.

In 2008 he had a short stint with Fayernord in Holland and also with Excelsior FC in the second division of Dutch football (in 2009), before returning to South Africa in 2010 to re-joined United.

Up on his signing with the Mighty Bucaneers, Erasmus said he was pleased with the move and for as long as he will be wearing the teams’ colors he will always strive to be at his best and in the process help the team challenge for every trophy.

“I’m glad to have moved to Pirates – it is a big team and it has huge ambitions so, I think it is the right choice I made,” he told
