JOHANNESBURG – Sipho Mbule credits the support he has received from his teammates, and the challenges they have thrown at him for his growth at SuperSport United this season.
The Matsantsantsa a Pitori midfielder has been their talisman, weaving his magic in the middle of the park to create goals as well as score a stunning strike against Cape Town City. Before that goal, coach Kaitano Tembo challenged him to score more if he is to retain his place in the starting XI. Mbule did just that in the entertaining 3-3 draw with the Citizens on Saturday at Mbombela Stadium.
Tembo will be asking for more of that when SuperSport visit Mamelodi Sundowns tomorrow in the second leg of the MTN8 semi-final clash at Lucas Moripe Stadium. The first leg ended 1-1 in SuperSport’s home leg, with Mbule bossing the midfield.
