Furman On CAF Drama: “What A Feeling!”

Furman On CAF Drama: “What A Feeling!”

By Soccer Laduma - Sep 24, 2017 09:55 AM
Dean Furman says that there’s ‘something special’ about the SuperSport United team at the moment, praising his side for their spirit after reaching the CAF Confederation Cup semifinals.
 
 
It looked as though Matsatsantsa were heading out of the tournament as the final minutes of their clash against ZESCO United approached, with the hosts leading 2-1 thanks to early goals in the first and second halves.
 
However, that was until the ball dropped to Thuso Phala – who scored the first equaliser – in the 92nd minute, with the winger smashing home to break ZESCO hearts with a second vital away goal.
 
Eric Tinkler’s side have faced some tough challenges along the way in the CCC, and the Bafana Bafana international says that they have all made them stronger as a team.
 
Speaking after the game he said, “There’s something special about this team with the spirit that we’ve built, especially over this competition… There have been times that have been difficult for us that we’ve overcome.
 
“Being 2-0 down away to TP Mazembe at 3 o’oclock when it’s extremely hot and we’ve come back to draw 2-2. We’ve been getting players punched in the face off the ball, and getting all sorts thrown at us. We just have something inside of us that says keep going, keep pushing.”
 
And how did he feel in those dying minutes? “In each game we know we’re going to get one more chance, we believe that,” he said. “We threw Clayton (Daniels) up front. We knew that Bradley (Grobler) was going to get a flick on at some stage, and when the ball fell to Thuso – who grew in confidence from his great goal in the first half – there was only one outcome. What a feeling."
 
SuperSport will face either MC Alger or Club Africain in the semifinals of the tournament.
