Orlando Pirates striker Kermit Erasmus has explained why he celebrated when he scored against his former team Mamelodi Sundowns.
The 32-year-old forward found the back of the net when the Buccaneers humiliated Masandawana 3-1 in the MTN8 semi-finals at the Peter Mokaba Stadium last month.

According to The South African, Erasmus rejoined Ezimnyama Ngenkani on the final day of the transfer window after parting ways with Bafana Ba Style.
He says he knew he would score against his former side.
“I knew I’d score against Sundowns and when I celebrated, it was because of the emotions that I felt was unjust towards me,” Erasmus told SA FM.
“I didn’t plan it, I didn’t think about it, it just happened. It wasn’t for anybody but the joy and the happiness of all the hard work I put in behind the closed doors and it finally paid off.
”The Port Elizabeth-born star went on to reveal that he wasn’t happy with how things ended with Bafana Ba Style.
“It wasn’t a tough decision to rejoin Pirates. I was disappointed how things ended at Sundowns. It was a bit disrespectful.
“They tried to move me somewhere I didn’t want to go. I wasn’t even given reasons why I wasn’t playing” – Kermit Erasmus said on SAFM
“I’m not going to say where they wanted to loan me. But I didn’t want to go there. As far as Chiefs is concerned there was never any interest from them.”

“It was just talk on social media but there was no offer. I even called John [Comitis] to find out if they had approached Downs, he said, ‘No’.
“When Pirates found out that I was available, they wasted no time in signing me. And who would say no to Pirates. It was a no brainer and like they said Once a Pirates Always a Pirates.”
