Morris signs with SuperSport

2011-06-28 11:43

Johanneburg - Veteran defender Nasief Morris is to return to local football with SuperSport United after he put pen to paper on a contract with the Pretoria side.

The 30-year-old is one of the most accomplished players the country has produced, boasting UEFA Champions League experience with Greek side Panathanaikos and a short stint in La Liga on loan at Racing Santander during a ten-year tenure in Europe.

Morris was a free agent after making 13 appearances for Cypriot side Apollon Limassol. SuperSport boss Gavin Hunt will be hoping that the centre-back, who also has 36 Bafana caps, will shore up a defence that may well be without captain Morgan Gould come the first day of the new season.

Cape Town-born Morris ignored interest from former club Santos and Mamelodi Sundowns to sign with the three-time PSL champions.
