SuperSport Confirm Early Release Of Star Man

SuperSport United have made an important decision regarding the future of captain Dean Furman even though the 2019/20 season remains suspended.

It was public knowledge by now that the midfielder, after almost six years of service to Matsatsantsa, would be leaving to return back to the UK and look for a fresh start while also welcoming his new born.

Stan Matthews, the club chief executive officer, has now revealed to the Siya crew that the club has allowed Furman – if possible – to depart next week.

“I have said to him he can go back for the birth of his child and knowing Dean he probably planned the conception so that he could go in June during the off-season when his wife, who is already there, gives birth,” said Matthews.

“The season was supposed to end on May 21 and I thought maybe we could make the Nedbank Cup final and I had asked him to book his flight a week after. Now with this Coronavirus we are definitely not going to be kicking a ball before his child is born. So I have said he can go now and doesn’t have to come back.”

With South Africa under lockdown and all travel banned at the moment, Matthews said there could be a way for Furman to still be able to leave the country next week. British Airways could have a charter flight departing SA for the UK.

“It is up to him if he wants to comeback. If the child is born and he hasn’t secured himself a new deal because right now we don’t know what is going on and clubs aren’t committing to Dean on a pre-contract yet because their leagues are also unresolved, he can come back. If he is sitting in limbo and everyone is healthy and he feels he can come back and help us finish in the top four, that’s up to him and I have left it open,” Matthews added.
