SuperSport hand Moralo first-team deal

SuperSport United have promoted Gape Moralo from the club's reserve team to the senior side.

The 20-year-old has impressed for Matsatsantsa's Multichoice Diski Challenge side over the past few seasons.

A South Africa under-20 international, Moralo revealed his delight at the promotion but admitted he will need to work hard to continue his progress thus far.

A statement on the club's official website read: "SuperSport United Football Club technical team has promoted MDC prospect Gape Moralo to train with the first team.

"The youngster joined the SuperSport Development Academy two years ago from the School of Excellence that is based in Elandsfontein, Kempton Park."

Moralo added: "It's my second season in the MDC this year, the MDC is very competitive. I haven't had a chance with the PSL.

"But I'm definitely sure the standard is very much higher compared to the MDC. This I can tell when I train with the first team."

He continued: "I share the same position with Sipho Mbule and Jamie Webber. The two have been with the first team longer than me and they are obviously experienced.

"I think what motivates me is the fact that being there is not a right but a privilege.

"It can be taken away at any moment provided I'm not doing well. That is what keeps me working hard and fighting for my position."
