Tembo – We Want To Sign Bafana Defender

SuperSport United head coach Kaitano Tembo has confirmed his intention of signing Buhle Mkhwanazi, who is training with the club currently.

The Bafana Bafana defender was inactive last season, having last played at Bidvest Wits in the 2019/2020 season.

Tembo, speaking in a press conference on Tuesday, said that Mkhwanazi brings the ideal experience to the team, and despite his inactivity last season he is in good shape

“Ja, look Buhle is training with us and I think he’s been doing very well,” Tembo said when asked by iDiski Times about the defender.

“He’s a clean living, professional. And I was even surprised, when I saw him in training, you know, for someone who hasn’t played for a year, he looked in good condition.

“He is an experienced campaigner as well as a Bafana Bafana international. So we are looking for someone who come in and help our young players like Keagan Phillips, who’s only 20, Luke Fleurs who’s only 21, Thatayaone Ditlhokwe, who’s only 22, to give them guidance and direction which we really lacked last season.

“So, I just hope everything goes well, and looking forward to work with him.”
