A senior player at the club
told Sport24 that there were no new faces, but they are
expecting to see some soon.
“Look, today was just about
medicals, but it was just us the players who were with the club in the previous
season,” the player said.
“It’s obvious the team needs some
strengthening so we are expecting new faces in the upcoming weeks.”
The player said they expect to start
the season well compared to last season where they found the team at the wrong
side of the league table.
There has been unconfirmed
speculation that Dikwena are interested in signing Michael Morton and Mor
Diouf, who are highly ranked by Johnson after working with the players during
his spell as coach of Supersport United.
