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 muscle.

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.
