Bidvest Wits midfielder Cole Alexander has revealed that he would consider a return to SuperSport United.
With Wits having sold their top-flight status to Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila, the Clever Boys’ franchise will be renamed and relocated to the Limpopo province as part of a brand new team for next season’s Premier Soccer League (PSL) campaign.
This has left several current Wits players with uncertain futures, as they ponder whether they will follow the new club away from Johannesburg or seek playing opportunities elsewhere.
One such example is hard-running midfielder Cole Alexander, who joined Wits from SuperSport in 2018.
The 30-year-old has played in the Limpopo province before, notably starring for Polokwane City from 2014 to 2016, but he insists that he would rather remain in Gauteng.
“Look, SuperSport haven’t engaged with me yet and I haven’t spoken to Stan Mathews,” Alexander told Sowetan Live.
“Yeah, I have been with SuperSport in the past and I have always said that they are a good club, I enjoyed my time there. I have big respect for the club and I would consider going back if the opportunity comes my way.
“I’m still contracted to Wits and I’m left with one year. So no team has approached me or anything. As players, we want to work and this Covid-19 affected everyone in the country. We are just waiting to return and to play, that’s all.”
Alexander will hope to finish the 2019-20 season on a high with Wits, who were placed sixth on the log with 38 points from 21 matches when the campaign was suspended back in March.
