MTN8 2018

Furman Praises SuperSport's Newest Signing

SuperSport United captain Dean Furman was full of praise for one of the club's newest signings, following their MTN8 win over Orlando Pirates.
 
 
SuperSport's defence of their MTN8 title remain alive after they defeated Orlando Pirates 4-3 on penalties at the Orlando Stadium.
 
Furman, who was Man of the Match, praised new signing Ghampani Lungu, who played at right-back on the night.
 
“I got to give special mention to our young right back Jones. Came in for us, Jones is his nickname. He is a striker/winger. We had a bit of a problem at right-back. He came in and was absolutely outstanding," Furman told SuperSport after the game,
 
“So from him to all the boys, I think everyone put in an outstanding effort. We delighted to go to the next round and we’re looking to defend our trophy,” he said.
 
“I think early on, we allowed Pirates too much pressure and time on the ball. We showed them too much respect. I think the goal changed that for us," Furman told SuperSport TV.
 
“It showed that we have nothing really to fear. For long periods, obviously Pirates dominated. We lost our legs at the back, but we had to hang on and we put in a solid shift in defence."
