Cape Town - New SuperSport United defender Bongani Khumalo believes Matsatsantsa and coach Gordon Igesund are the perfect fit for him as he looks to reignite his career following his return from Europe.
The former Bafana Bafana captain shocked many pundits and critics by re-signing with his old club last month, along with ex-Doncaster Rovers team-mate and South Africa captain Dean Furman.
Unlike Furman, who has spent his entire career in Europe, Khumalo established himself domestically with the Pretoria club before earning a high-profile move to English side Tottenham Hotspur back in 2011.
And while he failed to earn any sort of role in the first team at White Hart Lane, he did managed to gain invaluable experience with loan spells at other clubs.
His return to the PSL has also seen him reunite with former national coach Igesund, who he captained Bafana Bafana under.
And Khumalo has high praise for the coach.
"Everyone knows about Gordon," he said.
"He's a great coach and he's achieved so much in this country and he's coached the national team as well.
"We worked together at national level and now coming to the club, we all have our mandates.
"I'm a player that wants to win, I want to be in a team that challenges."
Khumalo, 28, won three successive Absa Premiership titles with SuperSport before his move away, and he now wants to reclaim the crown for the capital club.
"When I left, I left as a champion. Returning now I want to be a champion once again.
"Gordon is a coach who also loves winning and he's assembled a squad that represents that, an aggressive one and one that should challenge.
"We're not counting our chickens yet, it will be one game at a time and hopefully at the end of the season we'll achieve what we set out to do."
