Furman gives up on long-time dream


SuperSport United midfielder Dean Furman has thrown in the towel on his long-time dream as a player, as his future remains undecided.

When Furman joined Matsatsantsa he made it clear he wanted to win the Absa Premiership title but it seems like that dream will not come true this season.

Kaitano Tembo's side are all but out of the title race after their defeat to Golden Arrows at the start of the month, and Furman believes inconsistency cost them the chance to compete until the end.

"I think our biggest challenge this season is putting consecutive wins together and unfortunately we haven't been able to do that," Furman said after the loss to Arrows.

"To close that gap on Chiefs we have to go on an almighty run. Unfortunately for us we came from a good victory against Chippa United and we came here and couldn't get back-to-back wins, which is something we've struggled to do this season."

Furman has won almost every trophy with SuperSport but during a season that is looking like it could be his last one in South Africa, he has expressed his disappointment at not being able to collect that one medal he is missing.

"Yeah of course, this is what you come here for, the big one," he admitted.

"I'm delighted with what we have done, the trophies we have won, the finals we've been to. But the league is one that would be nice to have."
