Cape Town - SuperSport United coach Kaitano Tembo says he is unsure if Mxolisi Macuphu and George Lebese will be brought back on loan in 2019/20.

Macuphu joined United on loan from Bidvest Wits and performed well as he notched up five Premiership goals.

Meanwhile, Lebese arrived from Mamelodi Sundowns although his impact was less influential as concerns were raised about his level of conditioning.

The former Kaizer Chiefs left-winger seems set for a return to Sundowns where he is likely once again to be frozen out by coach Pitso Mosimane.

The 30-year-old is currently in Dubai where he is no doubt enjoying a much-needed vacation following his exertions in the recently concluded campaign.

Tembo told reporters: "Well we had three players on loan and their contribution was immense with Macuphu, who came and scored five goals for us. [Phumlani] Ntshangase played a role, same applies to George even though he came late, he was not in the right condition but he played a few games for us and we appreciate that.

"But regarding next season we have to respect that they are not our players before starting talk to the media and if there is any development we have to go back to their parent club and that's where the talks should start."
