Furman: Titles over money

Cape Town - SuperSport United midfielder Dean Furman insists his move to the PSL with Matsatsantsa was not motivated by money.

The 26-year-old joined SuperSport on a two-year contract as a free agent in mid-August after leaving Doncaster Rovers at the end of last season.

Furman's capture was a big investment that didn't come cheap, with the Bafana Bafana midfielder admitting the PSL side tabled a "competitive" offer, but he insists his sole focus is on bringing title glory to the Tshwane outfit.

"I think that clubs have to realise that if they want to be successful, then they have to be competitive, both on and off the pitch," Furman told Soccer Laduma.

"Definitely, from my experiences, South Africa is competitive in that respect, but it's not all about the money.

"It's about the football. When the two aspects combine and work out well, then you have yourself a good match.

"I don't want to gauge my career on how much money I have. I want to gauge it on how many trophies and medals I have to show for it."
