Zimbabwean goalkeeper Washington Arubi has become the first player to play a 100 topflight games for University of Pretoria.
Arubi topped up a century of appearances for Tuks at the weekend and now stands as the only player with a triple-figure number of starts for the club during its short history in the PSL.
The 30-year-old joined Tuks in their first season in the PSL at the start of the 2012-13 season and has only ever missed just three of the 103 official games that the varsity club has played as a top league club, making the first choice jersey his personal property.
“I feel honoured to hear about having reached such a milestone,” he tells KickOff.com.
“As a foreign player you are here to work towards playing week in week out plus for me I am the kind of keeper who doesn’t only rely on the training that we get at the club. I also have extra sessions because my aim is always to stay ahead. From the day I signed for Tuks my target has always been to perform consistently. Knowing how to stay disciplined in this environment has also played a part for me,” says Arubi.
Arubi recently extended his contract for another three years – just reward for a man that has served the club with distinction.
