The Bafana Bafana international says Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane spoke to him before the Citizens tabled an offer for him.

“I spoke to Pitso before Cape Town City approached me and he said he will bring me back and two months down the line I haven’t heard from him, when Cape Town City approached me out of respect I called him and told him about the interest, he was busy with the Caf Champions league,” Erasmus told SAFM.

“It wasn’t about money or the teams I wanted to enjoy myself and be on the field against no amount of money can make you happy, at the end of the day my decision was to join Cape Town City.”

The former SuperSport United and Orlando Pirates forward had an unsuccessful move to Europe that saw him play for three clubs before returning to South Africa.
