Comitis flaunts his Colombian forward

New Cape Town City FC signing, Juan Camilo Zapata from Colombia.

After the arrival of a South American football player in his team, Cape Town City Chairman John Comitis cannot keep his mouth shut. Cape Town City has signed Colombian Juan Camilo Zapata in a bid to keep its place among the top teams in South African football.

Comitis recently stated that he has been looking for a quality forward like Zapata for a long time. “We have been looking for a player like Zapata for a long time,” Comitis said of his new acquisition.

“We have been keeping an eye on him for a long time because of the way he plays. You will see, Zapata will pose a significant challenge to the teams we will face,” Comitis stated.

According to reports, Zapata scored 19 goals in 33 games for Hermanos Colmenarez in Venezuela’s Premier League. The addition of a new player is most likely a way to prepare for the loss of Kanyisa Mayo, one of Eric Tinkler’s key players.

According to media reports, Mamelodi Sundowns is interested in Mayo, who scores goals like his father Patrick Mayo. This is possible when the transfer window opens at the start of next year.

Tinkler needed a player like Zapata badly after Cape Town City’s poor start to the season. In the 12 games that Cape Town City has played, they have lost five times. They drew four games and only won three.

That is not good work for City, who finished second to Sundowns last season. The DStv Premiership games will resume after the World Cup, which concludes on Sunday in Qatar.

Tinkler’s team will face Royal AM in a game on December 30 at the Cape Town Stadium. Lorenzo Gordinho is another newcomer. Craig Martin has joined Orlando Pirates.
