SuperSport United legend Thabo September has backed goalkeeper Ronwen Williams to lead the club to greater heights as the new captain.

Williams was announced as Matsatsantsa's new skipper for the 2020/21 season, to succeed Dean Furman who leaves for England at the end of the current campaign.

"There was no debate on whether he must be given the armband or not. Nobody had a different view and nobody was shocked after the decision was taken," September told Isolezwe.

"I think he deserves the armband and it was a good decision. He is 28, but he brings loads of experience. Because he's a goalkeeper, this means he will lead the club for many seasons."

September also pointed out that the 28-year-old's communication skills will be a great asset for the team as they build their squad in the coming years.

"He will not only bring trophies to the club but will be successful because he will be a key player in helping to retain the quality of players and those that will be developed," he added.

"It will also be easy for him to communicate with his teammates to ensure there is an experience in the squad.

"Being a good communicator will be key to determine his success. On top of that, he lives a clean lifestyle in his private space.

"That will help him to lead by example and ensure he maintains good relations with the coach."
