SuperSport United have confirmed the signatures of Grant Margeman on a two-year loan and Thabang Sibanyoni on a one-year-loan deals respectively.
The pair joined Matsatsantsa from rivals Mamelodi Sundowns. Midfielder Margeman made his PSL debut in the 2016/17 season for Ajax Cape Town (Renamed Cape Town Spurs) and managed to play just under 100 games in his three-year- stay at the club, before securing a move to neighbours Mamelodi Sundowns at the start of the 2020/21 season.
In the 2021/22 season Margeman was loaned out to Swallows FC to get some game time and managed to get over 20 games under his belt and will hope to get more game time at Matsatsantsa.
Forward Sibanyoni played a major role in helping University of Pretoria to reach second spot in the Glad Africa Championship in the 2021/22 season, losing narrowly in the playoffs to Swallows FC. Sibanyoni played a crucial role in helping Bafana Bafana to win the COSAFA Cup in Gqeberha in 2021 with just under 10 international caps under his belt. SuperSport United CEO Stanley Matthews, “Grant is an exciting young talent that we look forward to working with this season and hopefully in the future.
Sibanyoni is a classic number nine that Gavin likes and feels will fit into our style very nicely. We welcome them both to the club.” Margeman is excited to join Matsatsantsa, “It’s a great privilege to join a team like SuperSport United and I feel honoured to be part of this club. I feel that it’s a step in the right direction in my career right now and I want to do my best.
Last season I felt that I had a decent season with Swallows FC, but I am going to work on improving on the stats side, which include scoring goals and getting more assists and helping the club to win games.”
The 26-year-old striker Sibanyoni is ecstatic about his new team “I am happy to join this great club. I have always wanted to prove that I can score goals in the Premier Soccer League, that’s why I am so excited to join SuperSport United. My ambitions are to score more goals and hopefully to be in the top 10 goal-scoring-list this season.
