Cape Town - Dean Furman says that SuperSport United have been making good strides during pre-season, in preparation for their opening league fixture against Platinum Stars.

Matsatsantsa have been quite active during the transfer season with Stuart Baxter having added the likes of Keegan Ritchie, Cole Alexander, Reneilwe Letsholonyane, Reyaad Pieterse, Onismor Bhasera, Thabo Mnyamane, Thabo Makhele, Anthony Gordinho, Teboho Mokoena and Thabani Mthembu in a bid to compete for all honours in the new season.

"We have already had a camp in Polokwane and we just came back from the Ingwenyama in Nelspruit," Furman told the club's website.

Baxter's charges were scheduled to venture to Spain for their pre-season schedule, however the trip was said to be called off due to unforeseen circumstances - with the squad finalising their preparations for the new season in South Africa.

"We are working on our fitness in preparation for the season and we are also working on our tactics for the season and everyone is working very hard to take the coach’s instructions on board," the 28-year-old added.

Having clinched the Nedbank cup last season, SuperSport will compete in the 2017 CAF Confederation Cup, and Furman believes their pre-season friendlies will prove to be ideal preparation for game situations.

"The friendly matches have been a great opportunity to improve our physical condition and get us ready for the season. Further, the matches allow the team to take the work which we have been doing in training into a match situation. The matches so far have been a success and the team is looking fitter and stronger with every game," he said.

Furman also took the time to speak about some of the club's new acquisitions, which he believes have injected a bit of quality into the team.

"The new players are settling in very well. In Reeyad, Keegan, 'Bash' (Onismor Bhasera), 'Yeye' (Reneilwe Letsholonyane), Cole Alexander, and Thabo Mnyamane - we have made excellent additions to the squad and we are seeing the qualities they possess every day," he concluded.
