SuperSport United Football Club have confirmed the departure of Bafana Bafana international and club captain Dean Furman with immediate effect.
The 31-year-old leaves the club having played just under 200 games scoring five goals.
In his five-season spell at the club, Furman has led Matsatsantsa to seven cup finals which include 4 championships, two Nedbank Cup back to back and two MTN 8 trophies. Three runners up medals, the Telkom Knock-out, MTN 8 and a historic CAF Confederations Cup.
The Cape Town born midfielder has led Bafana Bafana to three African Nations Cup tournaments and has 39 caps under his belt.
SuperSport United CEO, Stan Matthews said, “Dean will go down as one of our all-time great midfielders and captains. He has led us to 7 Cup Finals and delivered us 4 Trophies and 5 consecutive Top 8 finishes. His personal win ratio for the Club has been fantastic and is matched by his leadership and professionalism on and off the field. Dean is a super young man that we hold with deep affection and high regard and wish him and his wife Tash all the best as they build their new family life.”
Dean is currently in quarantine in London as he awaits the birth of his first child, expected to be born in the next few weeks.
SuperSport United would like to salute Dean Furman for his significant contribution to the club and would like to wish him all the best for his future endeavours.
