“He is a product of SuperSport development, I don’t think many people remember that. But again, he never really did much at senior level when he was promoted and left to join Mpumalanga Black Aces. After hearing he would be released, he wanted to go back to SuperSport because they helped develop him. He is excited and wants to repay the club for having faith in him,” said the source.
