SuperSport United have been boosted by the return of midfielder Masibusane Zongo from England ahead of their Absa Premiership clash against Bloemfontein Celtic at Seisa Ramabodu Stadium.
Zongo was in London recently courtesy of an invitation from English Premiership side Tottenham Hotspur for his second set of trials, having being with them last season. United coach Gavin Hunt confirmed that Zongo is part of the squad that left Pretoria today for the Free State for the match against Phunya Sele Sele. “He is back and it looks like he is still going to be with us for the rest of the season,” says Hunt, who also revealed that he will be missing the services of in-form striker Anthony Laffor due to injury. Laffor has joined Brent Carelse and Phelelani Mpangase, who are also nursing injuries. “Despite the injuries, everything has gone according our plans in terms of preparations for the game. I know many people have already started tipping us as hot favorites to win the League again this season following our victory over Chiefs, but for us it still early to count our chances. “We are going to approach the game against Celtic like any other and fight hard to come back home with the three points,” Hunt tells KickOff.com.
