Ex-Chiefs star opens up on Euro step

Players Abroad

A former Kaizer Chiefs star has discussed his move abroad as he looks to go bigger and better in the not so distant future.

Lorenzo Gordinho on Monday completed a move to Danish second tier side Viborg FF, with the help of his former Chiefs teammate Matthew Rusike.

The 26-year-old Amakhosi youth graduate made a name for himself when he signed his first professional contract with the Soweto giants in 2013.

He went on to make over 100 appearances in the PSL, including with the likes of Bloemfontein Celtic and more recently Bidvest Wits, after stagnating somewhat in Naturena.

However, his move to Europe is testament to his quality and potential his suitors saw in him, and the Bafana Bafana international has stressed that this is but a small leap towards where he could eventually end up in future.

"I've always wanted to get a chance to play in Europe, to prove to myself that I'm capable and prove to everyone that it is achievable," Gordinho tells KickOff.com.

"There aren't many South Africans abroad but it's slowly growing and just being able to add to that [is a good thing]. It would be awesome to grow from here. 

"This isn't the end or the top, this is a first step in a longer journey. I asked the questions to everyone in my team around me, and everyone gave me the same feedback that it's a window closer than South Africa is.

"Although it's considered a smaller league, it's a competitive league and one that's recognised within the circles here in Europe, so I'm feeling good and happy about the move, and everything's been good. I think I'm at the right place."
