Cape Town - SuperSport United's on loan winger
George Lebese has revealed that he lived an isolated existence in the
colours of Mamelodi Sundowns.
Lebese joined SuperSport on loan until the end of the season and he
has since explained what life was like at Chloorkop on a daily basis.
He told Soccer Laduma
: "I'm very much relieved, I was
holding thumbs that it would happen, and all glory to God that I'm able
to compete again...This (the transfer) was the motivation, I had to work
on myself until the transfer window opened so that I could get a shot
elsewhere because I knew it wasn't going to come.
"I'm looking forward to settling in, to meeting the guys and
contributing to the team. I just have to prove to myself that I still
have it and that I can still play. I want to be happy again, I've been
depressed for I don't know how many months, honestly. I'm happy to be
getting this new challenge.
"It was difficult (at Sundowns), when
you have almost no-one to talk to, you just go to training there, warm
up, go home, and you don't know what to work on."
United do not have an option to buy the 29-year-old meaning he is set to return to Sundowns at the end of the 2018/19 campaign.
The forward is expected to be available when United take on Golden Arrows on February 10 in an Absa Premiership encounter.
Kick-off is at 15:30.
