Masango: I do my talking on the field

Cape Town - New SuperSport United winger Mandla Masango is determined to move past all the media talk currently shrouding his career and get back to his best in the Premiership.

The Bafana Bafana international returned to South Africa after an indifferent spell with Danish Superliga side Randers. 

After winning the club's Player of the Year award in his debut campaign, the former Kaizer Chiefs man fell out of favor at the club this season after attempting to force a move away.

The 27-year-old was banished to the Randers reserve team, before he left the country without consent to start training with Matsatsansa - before completing his six-month loan move on transfer deadline day.

His actions with the Danish top-flight side attracted much criticism from the media due to a similar move while at with Chiefs, where he succeeded in forcing a move to Hestene.

"My time with Randers did a lot for my game,"Masango told IOL.

"I don't like to talk about a lot of things though. 

"I just want to play football because that's my job. Talking is for politicians. I am a footballer, I do my talking on the field. 

"It feels good to be back home, you know home is where the heart is. What motivated me to come back is to work with Baxter and my former colleagues (from Chiefs) at SuperSport," the Bafana Bafana winger concluded.

The winger reunited with former manager and team-mates Stuart Baxter, Renilwe Letsholonyane, Tefu Mashamaite, Keagan Ritchie, Morgan Gould, Riyaad Pieterse and Kingston Nkhatha.

Masango looks set to make his debut with the league leaders when they face off against Golden Arrows on Wednesday evening.

Kick off is at 19:30.
