The left-footed forward expressed excitement to be back playing, and said his main goal was to save the team he captained last season from relegation, or even help win the Nedbank Cup.
“It feels good to be back playing again. It has been pretty painful watching from the sidelines injured while the team struggled. I will do my part in helping us move up the log standings and I am confident that we will finish in a good position,” said Matema.
Spurs have progressed to the last 16 of South Africa’s premier cup competition and the former PSL top scorer came on as a second half substitute as they beat Mpumalanga Black Aces 3-2 on penalties in the first round.
