The Comitis team faces a battle in the Champions League. John Comitis, the manager of Cape Town City, has expressed interest in trading star midfielder Thabo Nodada to Mamelodi Sundowns as long as they can find a suitable replacement because they will be playing in the CAF Champions League this year.
According to rumors from yesterday, Sundowns have spoken with City about Nodada, who has a contract with the Mother City-based team till June 2024. Comitis has nevertheless stated that the Brazilians have not contacted him, meaning that if they decide to purchase Nodada, they will take their advice.
We do not intend to sell any players because we need the depth to compete in the Champions League and give it our all. Nodada is undoubtedly a component of that, but we must also consider other factors Comitis told Sowetan Tuesday, We need to consider about the player and also what would be a situation in trying to replace him.
All of that will be examined, but right now, nothing is being talked about. Sundowns hasn't gotten back to us. We have a connection there [at Sundowns], so we will wait for a call from them. If Sundowns are really interested, they may talk to us, and we'll go from there.
Nodada has already stated that he is prepared for a new challenge. In January, Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs were prominently connected to the small 27-year-old midfielder.
The City celebrity stated to Sowetan's sister publication TimesLive Podcast last year that relocating If Naturena were to appear.
I need a fresh challenge, and what better challenge would there be than to represent the Amakhosi team, which was your boyhood fantasy team? With a challenge like that, I would undoubtedly be enthusiastic. I firmly believe. In February of last year, Nodada stated, I have said it before.
The fact that the Citizens sold Surprise Ralani to Sundowns in December suggests that the two teams get along well. After Aubrey Ngoma in 2020, Ralani was the second City player to be sold to Brazilians in recent years.
