SuperSport United midfielder Sipho Mbule says he's thrilled to be back on the pitch and is raring to put in impressive displays after a long injury lay-off.
The 22-year-old made his comeback in the DStv Premiership 2-1 defeat to Orlando Pirates this past weekend.
He had been sidelined with a knee injury, and impressed with an assist for the opening goal, despite being unable to help engineer a win for his side.
Up next for SuperSport is a trip to face struggling Maritzburg United, with Mbule telling the Sowetan he was frustrated being on the sidelines.
He said: "I got upset that I missed six matches as a result of my knee injury. It was a frustrating moment for my family, but I am delighted to be back in the team.
"The feeling of playing 90 minutes again was indescribable. I enjoyed myself in the field of play and did not want the game to come to an end.
"I want to repay the faith the coach has shown in me by putting in great performances every time I get a chance to play.
"The coach told me that I can play the whole game and still do well, and I want to make sure that I work hard."
