Lebese: Chiefs return was never an option

SuperSport United winger George Lebese says going back to Kaizer Chiefs was never an option during the past January transfer window.
Lebese was linked with a move back to Amakhosi after enduring a tough season-and-a-half at Mamelodi Sundowns due to a lack of game-time.
The Mamelodi-born attacking midfielder has since joined Matsatsantsa on loan from Sundowns and could make his first start for Kaitano Tembo's side this week.
"It's just that people loved me whilst I was still there [at Naturena] and would have loved to see me going back, but it was never an option," said Lebese.
"There was no form of communication [with Kaizer Chiefs]. It was clear from the word go.
"I was looking for an opportunity and now I have an opportunity [at SuperSport] and that's really the main goal."
Lebese made his debut for SuperSport off the bench against Golden Arrows in a league game in Durban two weekends ago and has hailed his new environment as a "paradise".
"It's been good judging where I come from. It feels like paradise, I am very happy," said the former Amakhosi star.
"I have a fair opportunity to fight for my place now and obviously I am not expecting to just walk into the team because there are so many quality players."
