Bance: Team before personal glory

Cape Town - Chippa United striker Aristide Bance insists personal accolades are secondary to achieving success as a team on the domestic front.

The Chilli Boys moved up to ninth in the Premiership standings following their 2-0 win over Maritzburg United on Wednesday, with Bance on target at the Harry Gwala Stadium.

The Burkina Faso international has now scored in back-to-back league games for the Port Elizabeth outfit, but he insists his goal is to help United finish as high as possible in the top flight and any individual glory that follows is icing on the cake.

Bance arrived on our shores during the off-season following a spell in Kazakhstan with Irtysh Pavlodar, and the 31-year-old believes he will be fully up to speed within a month.

"It is great to score," he told KickOff.

"We had two great chances and we managed to score. That's good for the team. We worked hard as a team and deserved the victory last night.

"I am not here for individual glory. If I happen to win the top goalscorer award that will be a bonus.

"What is important is to see the team doing well in the League this season and that's my goal.

"I am still not yet there in terms of match fitness but after three to five games, I am sure I will be fine."
