On Tuesday evening Cape Town City confirmed that the 32-year-old dribbling wizard will be part of this club. For him, this will be the ninth club in his career.
Coach Benni announced that he will have his debut for the team against AmaZulu at the Princess Magogo Stadium. It looks like they are hoping that he will help them to become better. They want to have a better PSL log position.
Why Benni signed Mayambela?
Assistant coach Vasili Manousakis explain the reasons why they are signing the contract with Mark Mayambela. The former player of Orlando Pirates and Chippa United midfielder introduced on Tuesday. He will even play straight into the starting line-up against AmaZulu.
Mark show right away why he is in the first eleven. He has one great chance in the game, but the ball hit the crossbar. Luckily this ball wen in the goal. In this game, Cape Town City was defeated 2-1 against AmaZulu.
That night they were without their head coach Benni, he was sick. But Manousakis said that they decided for Mark because of his attitude. This was the main reason why they give him a contract. They were looking for experience, calm player to help them in some situations. For that reason, Mark was an ideal player, with a lot of experience.
He can play in different positions. They were training with him in the last couple of weeks. In that period they have seen some great qualities. For sure he will have a great influence on the team, besides he can become only better.
They have a lot of problems with injuries in the team. Every new player is a great help. Specifically when we know that Benni has a problem with players. When Gift Links leave the club, this was a big loss for them. Will they manage to win in the next game? This will be the main question in the future.
