SuperSport assessing Zambian defender, eyeing Bafana Bafana right-back

A Zambian defender is currently training with SuperSport United hoping to secure a contract while the club is also eyeing a Bafana Bafana right-back to bolster their defense for the upcoming season.

Matsatsantsa have hit the ground running in the transfer market. The club is busy rebuilding the squad in hopes of recapturing past glories with Gavin Hunt at the helm.

Gavin Hunt's first stint at the Swanky Boys was a period of immense success, marked by three consecutive league titles and a Nedbank Cup victory.

The club has been linked with a few established players as they look for a stronger comeback.


According to Soccer Laduma, Tandi Mwape, who’s currently contracted to Zesco United, is training with the Tshwane side with the club hoping he could be a good fit for them.

Mwape has also played for TP Mazembe (DR Congo) and Kabwe Warriors (Zambia).

Meanwhile, as reported by FARPost, Matsatsantsa are also interested in Sekhukhune United and Bafana right-back Nyiko Mobbie. They have reportedly put an enquiry to the player’s parent club Mamelodi Sundowns.

“SuperSport United have enquired about the availability of Nyiko Mobbie to beef up their squad for next season,” a source told FARPost.

“At the moment, SuperSport is very thin in that right-back position, that’s why they are looking at Mobbie. The possibility of losing Keagan Johannes has also made them to prioritise the position.

“At some point last season, they used Gamphani Lungu at right-back and that’s not his natural position, Lungu is a right-winger.”

To bolster their defense further, SuperSport United have secured the signing of 32-year-old center-back Pogiso Sanoka from TS Galaxy. Sanoka, eager for a fresh challenge, has inked a three-year deal with Matsatsantsa.

Matsatsantsa a pitori have also welcomed Phathutshedzo Nange, Brian Onyango and Keagan Dolly to training. However, it still remains unclear whether they have completed their signings.

Moreover, they have been heavily linked with Vincent Pule who recently left Orlando Pirates.
