New Bidvest Wits goalkeeper Darren Keet has played down a potential rivarly between he and Moeneeb Josephs, stating that his ambition is to simply improve the team.
Keet returned to Wits after five years in Europe playing for KV Kortrijk in Belgium, having left the Clever Boys in 2011.
The 27-year-old also harbours ambitions of winning the Absa Premiership following his return to South Africa and hopes Wits can improve on last season's second-place finish.
"I’m not worried about my chances I’m here to improve the team. I’m here to improve myself," said Keet when asked if he expects to dethrone Josephs.
"I’m here to improve Bidvest Wits to finish better than last season. You know they finished second and hopefully we can go one step further but ultimately that's the goal and that is the reason I’m here.
"Moeneeb, I said before he is the best goalkeeper in the league last season and I’m not here to take anyone’s space and I’m not here to be number.
"I’m here to compete and I’m here to work for the place in the team. Of course it is always up to the coach to decide who gets to play and yeah that is my goal.
"I’m not here because I want to be second or third choice, I’m here because I want to play but for every position you have to work for it."
The Bafana Bafana shot-stopper went on to admit that the PSL title may prove difficult to capture because so many teams have made such significant strides during the off-season.
"Everyone wants to improve and everyone wants to win and you look at Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates and Cape Town City," he said.
"You look at them and they have got whole lot of new players and everyone is trying to improve their position, so we will see how it goes."
