Cape Town City returned to pre-season training this week ahead of the 2019/20 Absa Premiership season.
The players assembled at their Hartleyvale base this week and C 0 oach Benni McCarthy is pleased to be back and says that things have started well, with all the players returning in good shape, and ready to compete.
City finished fourth last season in the league, and are also the defending MTN8 champions. McCarthy is looking to continue the progress the club has made since John Comitis formed the club in 2016.
McCarthy will be heading into his third season as City coach, and he now feels he is established in the role.
The 41-year-old former Bafana Bafana star is also ready to take things to the next level, and he feels he now has a squad balanced enough to really push for a title challenge.
Having already announced Abbubaker Mobara, McCarthy is excited about their new signings, but also about the return from injury of players like Kouadji Koussia, Thabo Nodada and Roland Putsche, while until a transfer deal is confirmed, Ayanda Patosi is also back at the club.
