2012-05-30 14:59

Former Kaizer Chiefs centre back Bevan Fransman has joined SuperSport United, the club announced today.

The former Bafana Bafana star has signed a three-year deal with the Pretoria outfit.

Fransman has been earmarked to replace Morgan Gould, who has signed a three year contract with Kaizer Chiefs.

United, who won the Nedbank Cup at the weekend, will be looking at beefing up the squad for the next season. They will be taking part in the Caf Confederation Cup.

Fransman has been plying his trade in Israel for the past four years and has helped his teams, Maccabi Netanya and Hapoel Tel Aviv, finish in the top three league positions on three occasions.

He has also played in the Europa League for three years and in the Uefa Champions League for a season with matches against top sides such as Benfica, Schalke, Galatasaray, Lyon and PSV Eindhoven. He worked under coach Lothar Mattheus and is looking forward to reuniting with coach Gavin Hunt, whom he played under at Moroka Swallows.

Fransman said: “I am delighted to be back in South Africa and to be joining an ambitious and professional outfit like SuperSport United is a huge motivation for me. I want to help them add to their impressive trophy haul of the past few years.”

Hunt said: “I have worked with Bevan for some time and he has all the leadership and playing qualities that we want and look for in this club. It was important for us to replace Morgan with a strong leader on and off the field and in Bevan I know we have a player with all the right ingredients.”
