Mobara heading back to Cape Town


Cape Town City look to have completed the signing of South Africa international defender Abbubaker Mobara from Orlando Pirates.
Mobara, 25, looks set to return to Cape Town after an underwhelming stint in Soweto in which he only featured in 331 minutes of Absa Premiership football during the 2018/19 runners-up campaign.
The eight-time capped Bafana Bafana midfielder-cum-defender was touted as a future captain to the Buccaneers after a solid debut season upon arrival from Ajax Cape Town but fell out of favour under head coach Milutin Sredojević.
With 111 league games under his belt, Mobara provides vast experience in the South African top-flight and it came as no surprsie to see his name linked with several club's in the league.
However, Benni McCarthy's side, who finished in fourth place last season, have acted swiftly in securing his services from the Buccaneers.
His versatitly as a defensive midfielder, right-back and ball-playing central defender provides the Bafana Bafana legend with array of options within his already impressive starting XI for next season.
The arrival of the Ajax Cape Town academy graduate provides a welcome boost with Kwanda Mngonyama and Judas Mosemaedi both departing for Maritzburg United this week.
