SuperSport United communication director David Skosana is pleased with his side signing a "quality player" like Mandla Masango.

Masango reunited with former coach Stuart Baxter at United on the last day of the recent January transfer window on a loan deal from Randers FC, which will expire at the end of the 2016/2017 season.

Matsatsantsa have been hit by injuries, as the league is set to resume in a week’s time. United’s preferred attacker Jeremy Brockie is out with injury and Skosana hopes the Bafana Bafana midfielder can add numbers in attack.

Zimbabwean defender Onismor Bhasera was involved in an accident while in Zimbabwe after the Warriors were knocked out of the 2017 Africa Cup on Nations, while experienced centre back Tefu Mashamaite has started training with the team after sustaining a knee injury that kept him out for the first half of the season.

“We are trying to make sure that the team is strong, we are going for the Caf Confederations cup plus we are challenging for the league. Baxter is always looking for good players,” Skosana told SABC.

“Mandla was training with us during the festive break so we spoke to his team Randers FC and brought him here. Mandla is a quality [player] but he has to fight for his place, there are injuries and that is why you need 30 plus players in the team that can add value to the club, which is what Mandla will bring.”
