Cape Town City could be in line for some big-name acquisitions after qualifying for the CAF Champions League. City are reportedly looking to freshen things up by pursuing a midfielder from Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates.
Cape Town City will compete in the CAF Champions League.
After a 2-2 draw between Royal AM and Orlando Pirates at the Chatsworth Stadium on Friday evening, City clinched a historic CAF Champions League qualifying. Only Twihlitwahla and the Buccaneers could have finished with the same number of points as the Citizen's if they had won their remaining games. If it had come down to it, the goal difference would have been used to potentially divide the three teams.
It did not, however, arrive To that end, both Royal AM and Pirates can only finish the season with 47 points, two points below the now-qualified City. Now that they've won that qualification, it appears like City are ready to show off their continental prowess by pursuing players of the caliber that Chiefs and Pirates might be looking for next season. Former Citizen Ayanda Patosi is thought to be one of the players.
Patosi would be returning to his home country.
Patosi, a Cape Town native, may be receptive to the thought of returning home after spending the previous two years abroad. Another thing that could provide City an advantage that neither the Chiefs nor the Pirates can provide is the opportunity for Patosi to put his skills to the test on the African continent The Citizens are keeping an eye on the player, but they aren't the only ones, according to Soccer-Laduma.
His current club may be eager to keep him.
"Ayanda (Patosi) has performed admirably and has wowed Foolad, who are eager to extend him a new deal." "It's something that's being talked about, but no decision has been made yet," a source told the same outlet.
It went on to say that the City was interested in Patosi's services.
The city is ready to entice him back.
"As stated by the source, City, who will play in Africa next season in either the CAF Champions League or the Confederations Cup, are keeping a close eye on the issue and are eager to bring the player (Patosi) back whenever the occasion arises, to the Mother City."
Patosi appears to have a number of alternatives for his next move, with at least three options accessible to him. Which one, though, should he pick?
