SuperSport target Rudath

SuperSport United are reportedly looking to add Namibian international Wendel Rudath to their squad.

The club finished third in the South African Premiership finishing in last season and are determined to taste success next season. Rudath (27), who won the helped Jwaneng Galaxy to the 2022-23 Botswana Premier League title, is a free agent after his contract expired at the end of the season.

“Rudath has received an offer from SuperSport and it is likely that the player will accept it,” a unnamed source told Kick Off magazine yesterday.

The Brave Warriors forward has made no secret of his desire to move to the South African topflight should a suitor come knocking.

Rudath, who scored in Namibia’s 3-2 defeat to Burundi last week, was one of the key players who helped Jwaneng clinch the league title with a game to spare. He was directly involved in 22 goals, scoring 15 goals and providing seven assists.

“The just ended [BPL] season was tough, but eye opening as we won the league. Now I am looking forward to a new challenge,” Rudath told FARPost recently.

Galaxy are keen on keeping one of their stars as they have tabled a new deal. However, the player hasn’t signed as he is eyeing a move to the South African topflight.

“My aim is to move on and play at a league that is more competitive like the DStv Premiership.

“I don’t want to settle for anything less. I am aiming to play to my highest level as far as I can.

“Right now, I haven’t received any offers yet from anyone [in South Africa], but I’m open to moving there.”

The speedy winger further revealed that he draws his inspiration from fellow countryman Peter Shalulile.

Shalulile established his name in South Africa with now defunct Highlands Park FC and Mamelodi Sundowns.

“I’ve had many conversations with Peter about the South African league. He told me that it’s a very competitive league, one must work very hard to do better and succeed,” he added.
