New deal for City captain


Cape Town City have announced that they have renewed the contract of captain Thamsanqa Mkhize.

Mkhize, who was with Bafana Bafana at the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt, was named City’s Player of the Year last season, proving to be their most consistent player in a campaign which saw them winning the MTN8.

The club has rewarded Mkhize with a new three year deal, showing just how much they value the 30-year-old.

“I’m grateful to Cape Town City for giving me this opportunity. When I first arrived here I felt like I was at home,” Mkhize said.

City, meanwhile, will begin the defence of their MTN8 title when they take on Polokwane City at Newlands Stadium on Saturday (15h00).
