SuperSport United Football club have mutually agreed the termination of long-term defender Clayton Daniels with immediate effect.
The club has agreed to release the player as we couldn’t agree on a new contract length. SuperSport United has made clear its intention of using this season to blood young players from its MDC structures.
The 36-year-old joined Matsatsantsa in the 2014/15 season and has played over 200 games and has won five trophies, which include one Telkom-Knock-Out, two back-to-back Nedbank Cup trophies and two MTN 8 trophies.
The club would like to wish him all the best in his future endeavours.
SuperSport United CEO Stanley Matthews, “Clayton has been a great player and a warrior for our club helping us win all three domestic cups and compete in many cup finals including the Confederation Cup. We understand his desire to play regularly, but as a club we have to also have an eye for the future and like Clayton was given a chance at a young age, we have players like Luke Fleurs and TT Dithlokwe who need to have regular game time. So we have agreed to release Clayton with immediate effect and wish him well in his future both on and off the field.”
Clayton Daniels added, “I feel I have 2 good years left in me so I don’t want to spend those years watching others play, but that doesn’t change the amazing time I have had at the club and how they been good to me and trusted me with the captaincy in 2014. So I wish all my SuperSport family the best and no one can take away the history we made together, it’s part of football and now I will be looking forward to finding a new club to finish my career”.
