Gould ready for selection

Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs defender Morgan Gould is ready for first team action after recovering from an Achilles tendon injury and playing for the reserve team recently.

According to the Football411.com website, Gould got injured after just two games for Chiefs, whom he joined at the beginning of the season, and after nearly six months is fit to play again.

On Thursday, Chiefs drew 1-1 with the University of Pretoria and Gould played 55 minutes of that friendly match.

"I had a good run, it was an intense game and a good test," the Bafana Bafana defender told Football411. "I enjoyed it and more important I don't feel troubled by the injury.

"I am fit and ready to go and it's up to the coach to decide if I play or not."

The Bafana defender missed out on the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations as well as Amakhosi's good run in the PSL where they occupy first place on the league table.

He also missed the 2010 World Cup due to injury, but the defender is not letting his injured past bring him down.

"These things happen and you just have to deal with it. I don't look back, I focused on recovering and getting fit and now I am fit," he said.

"The team has done very well and I have to be at my best to be selected.

"It won't be easy and I don't expect it to be. We have a quality team with quality players and that is why we are on top. And to maintain that we have to work hard which is happening every day at training.

Gould has to compete with Eric Mathoho and Tefu Mashamaite for a place in the starting XI, and Chiefs' defence is the second best in the league, having only conceded 11 goals in 16 games.

Chiefs resume their league ambitions this Tuesday (February 13) against bitter rivals Mamelodi Sundowns at the Loftus Stadium.
