Massive Blow For PSL Club, Shock Announcement Pending?

A struggling DStv Premiership squad has suffered a severe setback as a result of the team's unexpected goalkeeper's resignation.

The news of goalkeeper Hugo Marques' abrupt departure has handed coach Eric Tinkler and Cape Town City, the league's runners-up last season, and the club a shock since they have three rounds of games remaining and are still without a point.

Close sources claim that the Angolan had a personal matter that demanded his attention and that he return home to resolve before requesting freedom from his contract.

As a result against Maritzburg United tonight Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Darren Keet is scheduled to make his first start of the campaign and the Citizens are anticipated that they should begin looking for a replacement goalie.

As Marques' first one-year contract was about to expire, City gave him a one-year contract extension in May.

The 36-year-old who earned the DStv Premiership Goalkeeper of the Season award had a strong debut season with the Mother City team, with 15 shutouts in his 28 appearances.

The player and the club could not be reached for comment at the time this article was published.
