Elias Pelembe happy with Bidvest Wits start

Posted: 11 August 2015 Time: 15:55

New Bidvest Wits winger Elias Pelembe says sometimes it is not about money as he was forced to take a pay-cut when leaving Mamelodi Sundowns.

The Mozambican international joined the Clever Boys on a one-year deal after a frustrating season with the Brazilians. 

Pelembe was reportedly one of the highest earners in the PSL, but he says game-time had to take preference.

“It is not always about the money; it is about playing and that’s what is happening now and I'm very happy,” he says.

“I'm looking forward to playing more games at Wits. I still have a lot to offer in football I have already showed that. I'm going to give my best for the team and help them achieve their goals this season.”

The 31-year-old is also excited to play alongside Sibusiso Vilakazi, with who he enjoyed a good combination in the 2-1 Absa Premiership win against Ajax Cape Town on Saturday.

“Vilakazi is a great player, and he is also a team player. I can't complain about anything here. Everything is going well and I'm looking forward to having a successful season."
