Premiership

SuperSport United head coach Kaitano Tembo and a few players have tested positive for Covid-19 and will miss the Tshwane derby this evening.

SuperSport will still take to the field on Saturday evening, but a number of their regular starters will not be available for selection.

Assistant coach Andre Arendse will take charge of the team in Tembo's absence this evening.

Statement:

Given the rapid spread of the latest wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, the SuperSport United camp has not been left unaffected by it.

A number of players and club officials have tested positive in recent days, having a major impact on the club having access to its full playing squad. Included amongst those returning positive results is Head Coach Kaitano Tembo who will be replaced in the coach’s dugout by Assistant Coach Andre Arendse for the DStv Premier league match against Tshwane rivals Mamelodi Sundowns today.

The starting team will exclude a number of regulars who are either positive or are in isolation as a result of having been in close contact with players testing positive. All affected players and officials are in good spirit, displaying minor symptoms. The club’s medical staff is constantly monitoring the condition of all players.
