Cape Town - Veteran defender Thabo September believes he made the right decision in choosing SuperSport United over Kaizer Chiefs as he nears the end of his playing career.

The 2015/16 season will prove the 32-year-old's last before he retires from professional football, having enjoyed a highly successful nine-year stay at Matsatsantsa, where he won three successive Premiership titles, the Nedbank Cup and Telkom Knockout trophy.

Prior to his move from Bush Bucks to United in 2006, September had been in discussion with Soweto giants Chiefs over a switch to Naturena, but he eventually snubbed the Glamour Boys in favour of move to Tshwane.

"I don't regret the Kaizer Chiefs decision at all," he is quoted as saying by KickOff.

"It's not a secret, I was in negotiation with them [Chiefs] but I had to make a decision for myself, family and my career and after a lengthy meeting with Stan Matthews, I saw SuperSport United as long-term.

"In terms of money, I could have got a quick-fix at Chiefs but I wasn't ready for that back then. With my injuries and the years they were offering me, I don't think I would have had a long career there so I still feel I made the right decision."
