Cape Town SuperSport United returnee Morgan Gould expressed his gratitude to the club for giving him another opportunity after his exit from Kaizer Chiefs.

Gould has completed his return to Matsatsantsa after spending the last three seasons at Amakhosi.

The 33 year-old veteran defender was offered a one-year contract at Matsatsantsa to work under coach Stuart Baxter in his first full season at the club.

"It's very emotional because SuperSport is where I started flourishing. I am coming back to a place I call home," Gould told the Sowetan Live.

"I was here to train and keep fit. Fortunately, I reignited what I had previously done at SuperSport. I am here to add value, work, fight and try push to the maximum. God has given me an opportunity to be on the pitch again, so it's happiness for me and my family."

SuperSport chief executive Stan Matthews revealed that the club moved to sign Gould after failing to negotiate a loan deal for Mario Booysen with Mamelodi Sundowns.

"He was not in our plans, but the delays in our negotiations around Mario Booysen left us in a bit of a predicament. We were looking for a stopgap to help cover in that centre-back position."
