SuperSport terminating the contract of veteran defender Clayton Daniels came as a shock move to the fraternity, and the player has since commented on his exit from the Tshwane giants.
Back in July, the Siya crew reported that the 36-year-old had signed a one-year extension with Matsatsantsa, with talk of a future coaching role at the club, as the player planned to wind down on a glittering career.
However, SuperSport took the masses by surprise on Tuesday when they announced that the club reached an amicable split with the player, citing a lack of game-time and future plans for the player’s departure.
Speaking to SuperSport’s official website, the former Mamelodi Sundowns man has commented on his shock exit from the club.
“I feel I have two good years left in me so I don’t want to spend those years watching others play, but that doesn’t change the amazing time I have had at the club and how they been good to me and trusted me with the captaincy in 2014,” Daniels stated.
“So, I wish all my SuperSport family the best and no one can take away the history we made together, it’s part of football and now I will be looking forward to finding a new club to finish my career,” he added.
While there is no doubting his ability, despite his advanced age, it remains to be seen whether the bustling defender will see out the rest of his playing days in the country’s top-flight or if he will take a step down to compete in the GladAfrica Championship this season.
