KickOff, Gumede admits that the Buccaneers offer him a challenge to reach the
highest level in his career.
“I wanted a stiffer challenge, and to be able to compete at
the highest level,” said Gumede.
Rooi Mahamutsa, Siyabonga Sangweni and Ayanda Gcaba are now
vying for that centre-back role in the heart of Buccaneers’ defence; Gumede
knows he has to put the work in to get first team action.
“Firstly, I have to put as much pressure on them [Mahamutsa,
Sangweni and Gcaba] and find a way to challenge for a place in the team.
“Hopefully then I will be able to cement one.”
Gumede has a chance to make his debut against AmaZulu in
KwaZulu Natal at the Moses Mabhida Stadium when the PSL resumes.
The game is scheduled for Wednesday, February 11 while the
game starts at 19:30.
