SSU hint at Mkhwanazi plans

Premiership

SuperSport United coach Kaitano Tembo has hinted at his plans for new signing Buhle Mkhwanazi in the coming weeks.

Mkhwanazi joined Matsatsantsa on a free transfer at the start of the season after spending more than a year in the cold following the dissolution of Bidvest Wits.

The 31-year-old centre-back signed on a one-year deal with an option to renew but has been used sparingly by United during the early stages of the season, making just two cameo appearances from the bench thus far.

He could enjoy a more prominent role in the coming weeks, however, after Tembo revealed his plans for the Bafana Bafana international following Luke Fleurs' dismissal against AmaZulu on Tuesday.

"It is unlucky that we are going to lose Luke because of the booking but I was quite happy with his performance," the former Zimbabwe star said following the match.

"He's doing well, he and [Thatayaone Ditlhokwe] have been solid, but lucky enough we also have Buhle. That is the reason we brought him here.

"We knew that going into the season, we're going to be such difficulties, in terms of bookings as well as injuries so we are covered in that area."
