Mdantsane thriving under CT City coach


Cape Town City midfielder Mduduzi Mdantsane has been one of the club’s stand-out performers this season, reaching new heights under the guidance of Cape Town City coach Jan Olde Riekerink.

Mdantsane has equally developed into a top player in the colours of CT City as the player has already banged in eight goals with two assists to his name in just 13 matches so far this campaign.

The former Baroka skipper has formed a deadly partnership in the CT City midfield with Thabo Nodada and Thato Mokeke. The trio has been giving defenders in the DStv Premiership sleepless nights in every game they have played together.

Mdantsane joined the ‘Citizens’ in December 2019 after partying ways with Baroka, the same club he led to the 2018 Telkom Knockout glory.

Mdantsane, who is arguably in the form of his life has given credit to his coach Riekerink and teammates for his brilliant performances and start to the 2020/21 season.

“The coach has given me lots of freedom. I am always in the box and I am enjoying myself. I am playing with top players and they are always encouraging me and making things easier for me,” said Mdantsane.

The 26-year-old went on to state that it is imperative for him to convert the chances he gets. “It’s important to convert the chances we get to win our league games,” he said.

“I have been lucky to be in the box all the time to get the opportunities and yeah, I have to bury those chances.”

CT City are fourth on the log standings with 22 points after 13 matches. Mdantsane’s team will return to action on Sunday afternoon when they tackle Baroka at Peter Mokaba Stadium.
