Mamelodi Sundowns forward Anthony Laffor believes he has done enough in his 13 years in the PSL to be considered a legend.
Laffor was first introduced to South African football supporters when he donned the colours of Jomo Cosmos from 2005 to 2008, before he joined SuperSport United, where his Absa Premiership glory days began.
The 33-year-old won two league titles with Matsatsantsa and then made the move to Tshwane rivals Sundowns in 2012, where he’s won the championship on three occasions, to go with the Nedbank Cup, Telkom Knockout, CAF Champions League and Super Cup.
Laffor is still hungry to achieve more in his career.
“I still want to win the league with Sundowns. In future I want to tell my kids that I played for Mamelodi Sundowns and this is what I won. Every professional player has to set a legacy and I am in a position where I have been in the PSL for 10 or 11 years. I am a legend of the PSL already, so I don’t want to be a legend of failure,” the Liberian international tells KickOff.com.
“I think I am there already [as a legend]. So many foreign players come to the PSL and I think I have been consistent. It’s not easy in the PSL. I am happy because I remember when I was leaving SuperSport to come to Sundowns, people were saying I won’t play. But this is my sixth year at Sundowns. People thought I would spend only one year at Sundowns. So it’s all about the heart and what you want. I just need to be disciplined and keep my feet on the ground.”
