SuperSport United coach Kaitano Tembo has told the Siya crew that the club will look to add two more players to their 2019/20 season roster before the transfer window slams shut at the end of the month.

Having confirmed the arrival of another ex-Orlando Pirates player in attacker Thabo Qalinge last Friday, Matsatsantsa – according to Tembo – feel they are still a bit thin in some departments.
“For me, we probably still need one defensive midfielder and one addition upfront because we only have two out and out strikers at the moment,” Tembo explained.
Speaking to crew last month, club CEO Stan Matthews had revealed that an offer to Mamelodi Sundowns had been tabled for the services of Lucky Mohomi, who is a defensive midfielder. But it would appear their Tshwane rivals were not so keen to sell given that a deal is yet to materialise.
“With our strikers we only have (Thamsanqa) Gabuza and Bradley Grobler. People will say Evans Rusike, but we only use him as a winger. Sometimes we play with two strikers and that means we don’t have another one on the bench,” said Tembo.
With the window only closing at the end of the month, SuperSport are running out of time, though they can still push to get their targets before the deadline.
“We have a few players we are chasing on the continent because we have one more space on our foreign quota. It’s tough to get strikers, but we are hopeful,” the coach added.
