JOHANNESBURG: New SuperSport United striker James Keene says he feels at home already at his new club and believes they have what it takes to challenge for honours in the upcoming 2018/2019 season.

The English man completed his switch from Bidvest Wits to Matsatsantsa in the current transfer window and started preparations for the next season with SuperSport. Keene says he has been satisfied with everything so far at his new club and is happy to have made the choice to join the Pretoria club. 
 
“It’s great to be here, I know a few guys in the team such as Morgan Gould and Yeye (Reneilwe Letsholonyane). I have been with them at Kaizer Chiefs for a short period in the past.  So it is great to be here and I feel at home already.”
 
“I enjoy my new home, my teammates, support staff and the technical team as well.  SuperSport are a great team, the players are excelling, ambitious and they are hungry to win things.  They have good facility and great training grounds.  I certainly enjoy working with the coaches,” said Keene on the club’s website.
 
The 32-year-old former Portsmouth striker who is in Polokwane with the team on their pre-season camp says that he is ready to get the ground running and do what he does best for Matsatsantsa, which is scoring goals and help the team redeem themselves for the horrific 2017/2018 season they had. 
 
“I’m looking forward to the new season at United after spending two years at Wits.  I’m ready to do what I have been doing, scoring more goals and hopefully adding value to the team,” he further said. 
 
The Wells born striker who scores 12 goals in 39 appearances for Gavin Hunt’s side will compete for a regular place in the team with the likes of Evans Rusike and Bradley Grobler who are also forces to be reckoned with in front of goals.
