FORMER Warriors defender, Onismor Bhasera looks set to continue his career in the South African Absa Premiership after reportedly agreeing a one year contract extension with SuperSport United.
The 33 year-old, joined SuperSport United three years ago from fellow South African side Bidvest Wits but his contract was due to expire at the end of the current campaign.
However, despite the end of the season still a few months away, SuperSport United, who are coached by former Zimbabwe international Kaitano Tembo didn’t waste any time to confirm a new deal a new deal for the former Warriors star.
SuperSport United chief executive officer Stan Matthews confirmed that Bhasera had penned a new contract with the club that will keep him at Mantsantsanta until 2020, as a reward for his performances.
“Yes, we’ve given Bhasera a new one-year deal as a result of the way that he’s played for the club this season and the continued professionalism and impeccable attitude that he has displayed since joining us. We are very happy that he’ll still be with us next season. He’s the sort of person we want to be part of this club,” Matthews said
Bhasera has made 22 appearances for SuperSport United in the South Africa Absa Premiership games this season a remarkable feat considering his age.
The former Kaizer Chiefs, Maritzburg United, Plymouth Argyle and Bidvest Wits man joined SuperSport ahead of the 2016/17 campaign and has come back with a bang this year after battling with injuries last time out.
His form recently earned him the praises of his fellow countryman and coach Tembo who said the 33-year-old is getting better with age.
“Bhasera will always give you an honest performance and I think he has done that week in and week out. He works hard and he looks after himself and that is very key,” Tembo said.
“He brings a lot into our team defensively because he is a hard worker and I am happy for him,” Tembo added.
Despite his club form Bhasera has not featured for the Zimbabwe national team since the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations finals in Gabon.
