University of Pretoria coach Steve Barker reckons that Washington Arubi is one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier Soccer League.
Arubi kept the Chiefs attackers at bay on Saturday as the two sides played to a 1-1 draw and Arubi was named man of the match for his performance.
Barker says: “In my opinion, he is one of the top goalkeepers in the country and once again he showed his worth.”
The Pretoria University keeper has shrugged off competition from three other goalkeepers to claim the number one shirt and has already settled into the system, not long after he joined.
Arubi joined “Tuks” from league champions Dynamos last August and was immediately thrust into the first team.
“It’s rare for goalkeepers to be noticed, but thank God I managed to impress and convince Tuks to sign me. There are four goalkeepers, but the coaches have shown great faith in me and in my opinion, I have not disappointed them.”
“There is great competition for the position, but that keeps me going because I don’t have time to relax,” said Arubi recently.
