Bafana Bafana midfielder Thulani Serero has been named Vitesse Arnhem’s Player of the Month for the month of August and September.
The 27-year-old made the switch to the Dutch side after a disappointing campaign with Ajax Amsterdam during the 2016-17 season, which saw him fall down the pecking order and forced to play for their U23 side.
However, Serero says he is grateful for the award and insists that he is even more surprised by how quickly he has adapted to life at his new club.
‘I‘m very grateful‚’ Serero told the Dutch media.
‘It is the consequence of hard work. It shows that I’m on the right path. And it is also an honour for the team that has begun the season so well.
‘I can’t really explain why I have my rhythm back so quickly after not playing for so long’, but I walked into a warm nest at Vitesse.
‘From the moment I arrived I’ve felt comfortable and for that I must thank everybody at the club. For the rest‚ it’s a real surprise for me.
‘I was convinced that I could contribute, but the truth always lies on the field.’
