Cape Town - Thuso Phala believes teams like SuperSport
United and Bidvest Wits can no longer be considered as so-called ‘smaller
clubs’ due to their performances in recent years as well as their financial
Phala believes his club has shown their intent in the
transfer market and hopes to be part of what will be the clubs fourth league
title should things go their way.
“I think SuperSport United is also a big club so it is not
like I went to a smaller club,” he told Sport24.
“I did go to Platinum Stars but when I came to SuperSport I
knew I came to a big team.
“Doing well (last season) at SuperSport United really
motivated me to know that life is not only about Chiefs, Pirates and Sundowns.
“I think also a team like Wits, with the type of players
they buy, and a team like us, with the players we buy, it’s not about big teams
or small teams anymore.
“They go out there and get the players they want and at
SuperSport United they give the players big contracts and coming with that is
pressure for results, but that said I think we are going to be challenging this
year,” Phala concluded.
SuperSport have made big international signings recently and
are currently looking to secure deals for two unnamed defenders as well as a
deal for Bongani Khumalo.
