The former Bafana Bafana international made 28 appearances for Babina Noko last season to help secure fourth-placed finish on the long standings. He revealed that the playing style of City is what made him decide on moving to the Mother City.

“I think signing for City is something I’m looking forward to. I’m really happy and I’m very honoured to be here. Like I said, I manifested it years ago when I came back to the country from Europe,” he said.

“The playing style of Cape Town City impresses me a lot. All I care about is winning and making sure that I get the best out of myself so people can enjoy my football. There are a lot of similarities between European teams and Cape Town City, they play very structured football.

“The kind of player that fans can expect is a calm player and understands who he is and makes it easy for other players on the pitch. You could say a conductor or a general.”
