Cape Town - SuperSport United midfielder Teboho Mokoena has welcomed the arrival of new team-mate George Lebese, saying he is a "good addition" to the team.

The 30-year-old has been handed the chance to resurrect his career at Matsatsantsa after failing to break into the first-team setup under Pitso Mosimane at Mamelodi Sundowns.

The addition of the former Bafana Bafana international on loan until the end of the current campaign could prove to be shrewd one, and Mokoena feels the winger's arrival has raised the overall quality of the SuperSport squad.

"Besides playing against him before, I didn't know him personally," Mokoena is quoted as saying by SowetanLive. "But when he first trained with us, I felt he was a good guy and someone who is very calm.

"He is gelling very well with the team and has made us better. Obviously, people judge you from a distance without knowing the real person.

"From the little time I have spent with George, it's been very good and he has been a good addition."
