Known for his tough tackles and unwavering commitment to his team, Morgan Gould has made a name for himself, both on and off the field. But it’s not just his skills as a defender that have earned him recognition; it’s his force of habit for collecting red cards that has made him a controversial figure in the Premier Soccer League (PSL) history.
The Rise of Morgan Gould
His journey in professional football began with the Jomo Cosmos before he made the switch to SuperSport United in 2008. However, it was his move to Kaizer Chiefs in 2012 that truly catapulted him into the national spotlight.
During his time with Kaizer Chiefs, Gould became a key player in the heart of the Chiefs’ defense. His towering presence and fearless challenges were often a nightmare for opposing forwards. He played a pivotal role in the team’s success, helping them secure several titles.
The Red Card King
While Gould’s contributions on the field were undeniable, it’s his record for red cards that often dominates discussions about his career. With a total of seven red cards during his time in the PSL, he holds the unenviable record for the most red cards in the league’s history.
Gould’s playing style was characterized by his passion for the game and his aggression in defense. While this intensity endeared him to fans, it also landed him in hot water with referees on more than one occasion. His fiery spirit sometimes got the best of him, resulting in those red cards that earned him a notorious reputation.
