Official: CT Spurs sign 3 Brazilians

GladAfrica Championship

Cape Town Spurs have bolstered their squad with the signings of three Brazilians as they look to bounce back after a poor start to their GladAfrica Championship campaign.

After rebranding from Ajax Cape Town, Spurs set a clear target of winning promotion to the DStv Premiership but after a string of poor results, they have acted quickly by replacing Vladislav Heric with Ian Taylor as head coach.

With former Urban Warrior Nathan Paulse their new assistant to Taylor, the club has now announced their fourth Brazilian signing of the campaign after Jairo Souza Da Silva's arrival.

"Cape Town Spurs are excited to announce the signings of Elisio Batista da Conceição Junior, Igor Ferreira Neto de Oliveira and Kassiano Soares Mendonça," the club statement read.

"Batista, 27, joins the club having last played for Ferroviário Atlético Clube in his native Brazil. Prior to that, the towering centre-forward plied his trade in Portugal, Australia and Malta.

"Igor, better known as the Brazilian Balotelli, most recently donned the colours of Clube Atlético Serranense. At 24 years of age, he is the youngest of the trio.

"Kassiano, 25, is a versatile defender. He cut his teeth at the famous Fluminense academy before spells in Finland, Slovakia, Malta and most recently Thailand."

Spurs travel away to face Baroka FC in Nedbank Cup last-32 for their next fixture on Monday.
