Former Orlando Pirates dribbling wizard Thabo Qalinge has signed for Absa Premiership side SuperSport United.
As reported on Futaa last month, Pirates shocked the local scene by announcing they have released the 27-year-old fan favourite after more than four years at the club from Mpumalanga Black Aces.
Qalinge spent the past month training with United in the hopes of impressing coach Kaitano Tembo. The club have now announced signing the Soweto-born attacker on a one-year deal with an option of two years.
