SuperSport United have confirmed that Senegalese striker Mame Niang has signed a new contract with the club.
The on-loan University of Pretoria striker has agreed a new deal with Matsatsantsa, after they decided to offer him a second chance with the club.
SuperSport’s official Twitter account stated, “Mame Niang has signed a three-year deal with Matsatsantsa.”
Niang has been in impressive form while on loan with Tuks this season, scoring 10 goals as the club squeezed into the PSL’s top eight, despite only gaining promotion to South Africa’s elite league at the end of last season.
Chiefs boss Kaizer Motaung has showered praise on the team and its multitude of fans following their League triumph.
Despite a surprise 1-0 defeat to University of Pretoria yesterday, Amakhosi had reason to celebrate as they lifted their first trophy since 2005.
Firstly, Motaung spoke highly of the team’s coach Stuart Baxter, saying the Englishman has been “incredible” despite being in only his first season with the club.
“I must give credit to Stuart. He’s been incredible in his maiden season,” Motaung starts off.
“I must also give credit to the players; some were new and the only player in this team to taste League glory was Kaizer [Motaung Junior] back in 2004/05. The rest of the guys are not here anymore. I think the players did themselves proud and they have written their own history.
South African midfielder Kamohelo Mokotjo has signed a three-year deal with Dutch Eredivisie side PEC Zwolle.
The midfielder previously played for SuperSport United before moving overseas in 2008 where he signed with Feyenoord and then went on loan to Excelsior before moving back to Feyenoord.
Mokotjo says he is delighted with his move to Zwolle. “I was ready for a new challenge and I am happy with this opportunity.
“A few weeks ago the club showed some interest in me and after an initial discussion with Zwolle coach Ron Jans and technical director Gerard Nijkamp, I was positive that something good would happen.
