Mbebe is one of the players that were unveiled at Matsatsantsa on Monday, when the club announced the new signings made in the January transfer window.

The former Royal Eagles player has been training with Leopards, before his move to SuperSport.

According to a source close to Leopards, the Limpopo outfit is unhappy that the 22-year-old was snatched right under their noses, after his impressive performance for them in a recent friendly against SuperSport.

“Black Leopards are not happy with the way SuperSport United signed one of the players that were training with them recently. They are lodging a complaint about it, as a result. Leopards complain that SuperSport signed a player that was meant to sign with them.

"The player in question played for Leopards in a friendly against SuperSport recently. He scored two goals in that game and he was impressive throughout. The boy went to Leopards from KZN. He is a good striker. He has been training with Leopards. He was on trial with the team. (David) Thidiela is crying foul about how the player was signed by SuperSport.

"Leopards were in the process of signing the player when SuperSport signed him first. They (Leopards) are in possession of the paperwork required when signing a player, including the copies of his ID (Identity Document). In football such things (players’ movements) happen quickly and there is no time for delays,” said the source.     

Mbebe was a free agent when he signed for SuperSport.
