SuperSport Set For Secret Signing?
SuperSport United may have already signed nine players ahead of the 2016/17 Absa Premiership season, though it appears they could have one last surprise up their sleeve.
Stuart Baxter is looking for his team to build on last year’s Nedbank Cup success with a title challenge in the new campaign, and has brought in the likes of Reneilwe Letsholonyane, Cole Alexander, Thabo Mnyamane and others in order to help him do that.
After announcing their new signings and launching their new jersey over the weekend, SuperSport’s CEO, Stan Matthews, confirmed that they are working on one more ‘exciting deal’ before the transfer window closes on 31 August.
When asked if they were done in the transfer market, Matthews replied, “No way! You know I like to throw a last minute 31st of August deal. We’re working on one more exciting deal and I hope that it’s going to happen. I want to keep you in suspense.
“I would like to try and get one more surprise package, but if not we’re absolutely confident in the side we have. We hope to mount a challenge and be contenders, and hopefully be successful both domestically and in Africa.”
SuperSport, along with Platinum Stars, will compete in the 2017 CAF Confederation Cup following their Nedbank victory back in May, and coincidentally get their league campaign up and running against Dikwena on Wednesday.
