Morris happy to be 'home'

Johannesburg - Nasief Morris says he is delighted to be back at Santos following his loan move from SuperSport United this week.

The defender began his career with the People's Team in 1997 and enjoyed four fruitful years with the club before his footballing career took him overseas.

The 30-year-old returned to South African shores at the beginning of this season with Matsatsantsa, but restricted first-team action under Gavin Hunt has resulted in the full-back making his return to Cape Town.

"It was an easy decision, I wasn't playing at SuperSport and Santos needed some help," Morris told SuperSport. "It feels like a homecoming for me, this is where I started my career and I am really happy to make the move."

Morris has racked up over 200 appearances in Europe, where he played for Greek giants Panathinaikos as well as Primera Liga clubs Recreativo Huelva and Racing Santander.

However, he admits he always considered returning to the Premiership, adding: "It is good to be back in the PSL, it came to the point where it was right for me to come home, even though I had just turned 30. The deal at SuperSport was a good one, it just did not work out."
