Cape Town - SuperSport United winger Mandla Masango says he is enjoying his stay at the Tshwane club, but does not know if he'll still be there next season.

The Bafana Bafana attacker joined Matsatsantsa on a short-term loan deal from Danish club Randers FC during the 2016/2017 January transfer window.

He quickly made his mark on the side with some outstanding performances, and some goals, which helped him to settle in, says the former Kaizer Chiefs man.

"The players have been really amazing towards me, helping me to settle in quickly because I know what type of patterns the coach uses. I was unfit when I arrived. But I worked on it to ensure that I am ready.

"The goals that I scored did me a world of good because as a player you always want to contribute towards the club's success. I try to do my best whenever I am given a chance because you never know what tomorrow holds," he told The Star.

Masango however admitted to being unsure as to where he'll be playing his football next season.

"It's a tricky question. My focus is here. After the season ends, that will take care of itself," he explained.

The 27-year-old says his time in Europe has made him a better all-round player and also contributed to his bright start at SuperSport.

"There isn't much difference to the Mandla that left South Africa to this one. It's just that I have learnt a few fundamentals that side. I combine that with what I already knew, which has helped me grow.

"(In Denmark), you play more as a box-to-box player even if you are a winger. You don't just stand on the flanks and wait for the ball. You must defend, too. We do the same thing here at SuperSport which helps the team to be compact," he elaborated.
