Furman thanks South African followers



Bafana midfielder Dean Furman has thanked his South African fans for their support ahead of last night’s FA Cup tie that saw his English club Oldham Athletic go out at the hands of Everton.

“Thank you for all the tweets from South Africa tonight. I really appreciate your support,” he wrote on his twitter account after the 3-1 loss to the premier league side in the fifth round replay.

Furman, who came on as a substitute in the first match, captained his team from the start on Tuesday at Goodison Park, having missed the sensational fourth round win over Liverpool because he was playing at the African Nations Cup finals.

“amazing night but always disappointing 2lose.The support was incredible. Stuck by us the whole night and kept us going.It's been a great...” (punctuation Furman’s)

Furman later added: “Journey to get to the 5th round. Now we must focus on the league. Huge 14 games ahead for us. Everyone in it together!”

Oldham are in deep trouble near the foot of League One, having recently lost their manager and playing under a cloud of financial uncertainty with the club on the brink of bankruptcy.

The 24-year-old Furman is set to depart the club at the end of the season and could be headed to South Africa’s Premier Soccer League, his agent said earlier this week.

Oldham ousted Liverpool 3-2 in the previous round and then drew 2-2 with Everton at home 10 days ago. But David Moyes' team dominated from the start in the replay, and next host Wigan in the quarterfinals.
