Cape Town - SuperSport United midfielder Dean Furman says he is slowly finding his feet playing in South Africa's domestic league with each game that he plays.

The 27-year-old joined Matsatsantsa at the start of the season after spending his whole career playing his football in the UK, including English club Chelsea and Scottish giants Rangers.

The Cape Town-born Furman, though, decided to link up with Gordon Igesund at the Tshwane club and admits that he needed time to adapt to the Premiership, but is now starting to show why he is so highly rated.

Furman told KickOff: "Yeah, I'm feeling good and obviously it took me a little bit of time.

"I didn't have much of a pre-season and I'm enjoying my football at SuperSport and hopefully we can start picking up good performances in the League and move up the table."

A player who has already captained Bafana Bafana on occasion, Furman will hope he can continue to help SuperSport climb the table after a sluggish start, they are currently sitting in ninth place in the Premiership standings after 11 matches.

Matsatsantsa's next match in the league is a derby against the University of Pretoria on December 20.
