Furman rallies CT support
Johannesburg - Bafana Bafana’s midfield star, Dean Furman, has urged Capetonians to come out in numbers when Gordon Igesund’s men take on the Central African Republic this weekend.
According to the soccerladuma.co.za website
, Furman, one of only two Cape Town-born players in the current Bafana squad, has spoken of his excitement leading up to the game, explaining that the squad love being back in the Mother City.
The last time the national played in the Western Cape they were beaten 1-0 by Norway in a packed out Cape Town Stadium, and Furman is hoping that the atmosphere will be the same this time around, though not the result.
The Doncaster Rovers midfield man told the Siya crew
, “Sadly I didn’t get the chance to play in Cape Town last time because I was injured, but I was able to take in the atmosphere that the fans generated both inside and outside of the stadium, it was something really special.”
“I’m really looking forward to hopefully being out on the pitch with all the backing of the Capetonians. It’s a special place for me personally as it’s where I come from, but all the boys love being here and we really appreciate the support we receive from the locals.
Furman had a message to pass on to Cape Town’s football fans, saying, “We hope that all the fans come out in their numbers to get behind the boys in what is a massive game for the country. Their support will go a long way in helping the team get three points.”
