Tembo Explains Chigova Signing
Posted: 14 November 2020
SuperSport United made a surprise signing in this window by confirming the signature of goalkeeper George Chigova from relegated side Polokwane City.
United have an undisputed number one in Ronwen Williams and long-time number two Boafela Pule, when The Beautiful Game asked if Chigova is replacing Pule, head coach Kaitano Tembo said;
“No, not necessarily, we recently extended the contract of Boalefa Pule for a further three years, so that shows the trust and belief we have in him. But in the same vein, we have to look at that department because we lost Washington Arubi and George was coming in on a free, so that gave us an opportunity to bring him over.
“But over and above that, we want to compete you know, we want to solidify in all positions, so that’s one area we thought we can also try to strengthen, and Pule has done extremely well. Moreover, the two goalkeepers will push Ronwen for the starting berth and it will improve him, concluded Kaitano.
Tembo will be expected to compete on all fronts this season bar the MTN8 where they were recently knocked out by Bloemfontein Celtic in the semifinals.
