Cape Town - SuperSport United defender Bongani Khumalo says that despite not playing in the PSL for so long, he has seen slight improvements.

When speaking to the official PSL website, Khumalo admits the level of football in much high in the UK and it still could be a while to adjust to the changes but is looking forward to it.

"I've just been back for two games so far, so it's difficult to give an assessment on what's changed,” he says.

“Being in England and being exposed to such a high level of football, it's really hard to adjust to the change.

“So it's hard to say what major changes have occurred in the five years I have been away. But there definitely have been improvements."

Khumalo spent five years at Tottenham Hotspurs without featuring for the club, instead was juggling several loan spells.

“I think if you look at the foreign influx, there have been some positive changes.

“When I was playing we had only African players here, guys like [Elias] Pelembe and Fikru [Teferra], not so much players from other parts of the world.

“Now you look and you see Brockie and others from beyond the African continent. They've come in and done well too, which shows that South Africa is now attracting a bigger market, which can only help the quality," he concluded.

United's next PSL clash is against Mpumalanaga Black Aces on Saturday, August 22.

Kick-off is at 18:00.
