Cape Town City’s newly signed goalkeeper Tatenda Mukuruva says he is inspired by other Zimbabweans that have excelled in the Absa Premiership.

The 20-year-old goalkeeper, who played all of the matches for the Warriors at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations joined Cape Town City as a free agent after his contract at Dynamos FC expired at the end of 2016.

“It was my dream to play here, I am happy that I have managed to come here, when I get a chance I am going to work hard. I saw George Chigova, Knowledge Musona and Khama Billiat where doing great and I thought it was a great stepping stone for me and one day I would like to play in Europe. When I was younger I looked up to Khune, he is a good goalkeeper and I am looking forward to play against him.”
