Cape Town - SuperSport United manager, Gordon Igesund, revealed he is relishing the selection headache the imminent arrival of
Phumelele Bhengu will give him.

Bhengu finished last season as the National First Division's
top goalscorer and earned a move to Matsatsantsa in the process.
Igesund said he hopes the arrival of Bhengu will force all
of his strikers to raise their game in order to secure a first-team place.
"I brought in Bhengu for two reasons: One, he's the
kind of player that can score goals," he told KickOff.
"He's proven that over the last couple of years as he's
always been amongst the goals - he's scored 22 goals for Thanda Royal Zulu in
the last season - and he, like everybody else, will be fighting."
SuperSport secured arguably one of the signings of the
season in January this year when they brought in New Zealand striker Jeremy
Brockie, who went on to score 10 goals in all competitions, but Igesund said it
was too early to say if he would pair Bhengu and Brockie together up front.
"We'll have to see - it's too early to say. Sometimes
you get very similar players, but I've got a very good strikeforce - Kingston
Nkhatha, Jeremy Brockie, Dove Wome, Bradley Grobler, Bhengu, Thuso Phala - and
I'm very happy with that."
