Legend In The League To End Career In SuperSport?

According to SuperSport United CEO Stan Matthews, there is a strong probability that a PSL legend, veteran defender Onismor Bhasera would retire after the current season after a distinguished career with the team.

If Bhasera does decide to retire, Matthews promised that they will make room for him in the team, much like they did with Grant Johnson, Thabo September, and Jabu Maluleke, who was recently brought back as a set piece coach.

Matthews also stated that he would cover his tuition costs if he want to pursue coaching certifications.

Along with his teammate Siyabonga Nhlapo, the 36-year-old recently received their diplomas from the Player Transition Programme for the PSL at the Gordon Institute of Business in Pretoria.

His nickname is Bash, and he joined the club from Bidvest Wits before the 2016–17 season. This is his seventh season with the Tshwane giants.

Three awards have been given to him: two MTN8s and the Nedbank Cup.

Hunt chose to go with the legend, Bhasera as his captain after Ronwen Williams left at the start of the season to join Mamelodi Sundowns in a more lucrative transfer.
In 10 games in all competitions, he has made an appearance, and he has scored once, a goal against his old team Maritzburg United.

He has assisted SuperSport in moving up to third place in the DStv Premiership standings with 21 points after 12 games as the season has been suspended due to the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

In Matthews’ words to the iDiski Times, “He’s probably going to retire at the end of the season, maybe, unless he believes he’s got one more year in him or whatever.”

“He just completed the player transition program very, very well, and he’s someone who won’t hesitate when he obtains his coaching credentials, which I asked the club to pay for him as a token of appreciation for the dedicated service that will get him certified as a coach.

A PSL legend

“For sure Bash will end up in my system somewhere. Great leader, who has great character, a great personality, a tremendous work ethic, and discipline, wonderful role model – just exactly what the club stands for.

“Like Jabu Maluleke, my former player. Thabo September who has taken the DStv Diski Challenge is my former player. Andre Arendse is my former player, Grant Johnson is my former (are all working at the club).”

Bhasera, who has also played for Kaizer Chiefs and Golden Arrows in the past, has featured in 165 matches for the club, scoring two goals in the process.
