Kaizer Chiefs defender Daniel Cardoso was previously linked with the move to the United States. However, at this moment, his focus is on helping the Chiefs go forward in the Premier Soccer League.
Amakhosi were lucky to have Cardoso as their defence but he also contributed in the goalscoring department. He netted four goals so far in this season. Read more on Soccer 10 today;
Daniel Cardoso has set a goal of 10 goals
“I think that every footballer dreams to play abroad. However, we will see everything when I cross that bridge. I am still with Chiefs on contract and I want to help the club. It will depend on what will happen in this upcoming season. Once we start talking about this, everyone will know. Until that moment, I am a Chiefs player and completely focused on the club.” – Cardoso added.
His current contract with Chiefs will end in June but the discussion between him and the club didn’t start yet. “Certainly, I have to play. I need to get as much game time as possible so I can even be able to get a new contract. Players are as good as their last game was. That is why it’s very important to keep my form.”
“We want to win every trophy we compete for. Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates, they all have a star on their badge. We also want that star. During our last game in the CAF Champions League, we didn’t do well but we learned from that. At the beginning of this season, I have set a goal of 10 goals. We still have 11 games to play and hopefully, I will achieve my goal. It isn’t important if all of my goals are penalties.”
Chiefs are close to snatching the league title win, which will automatically qualify them for the CAF Champions League next season. Cardoso is just 6 goals away from his dream to net 10 goals. Lorenzo Gordinho is one more player that parted his ways with Chiefs. He was also a good friend of Cardoso who was sad to see him leave.
“I am very sad that he left. He is a good, young player and unfortunately, didn’t get the game time. He was with the club for eight years and I think that this change might do him good. Gavin Hunt is a great coach, he will know how to use him. I wish him very best and I hope we will remain friends forever.” – Cardoso said.
