With Ronwen Williams taking over the reins as SuperSport United captain after Dean Furman’s departure from the club was confirmed, the goalkeeper has revealed the advice he received from his outgoing skipper.

Furman spent five successful seasons with Matsatsantsa A Pitori, leading them to seven cup finals during this period.

Earlier this week, both SuperSport and Furman confirmed that the 31-year-old has left the club, citing being closer to his family in the UK, especially with the arrival of his new born as his reason for leaving.

Williams has been selected as the man to take over the armband from Furman, and although it is a daunting task, the 28-year-old is up to the challenge. He recently opened up on the relationship he shared with the midfielder, as well as the advice he left him with.

“I and Dean have become very close friends, we are brothers on and off the field. He always told me that I am Bafana Bafana number one and that I should work hard and not give up because he believed so much in my abilities. We have similar characteristics on the field where we don’t except poor attitude or poor effort and our relationship has grown from strength to strength where we know we both a call away,” Williams told his club’s official website.

Don't worry son " The Fat One " will never recover from his old age injuries , you'll be Bafana - Bafana goalkeepers until you retire at the right age , you won't be forced to retire by old age injuries like The Fat One
