Mokhuoane ready for top-flight football


Cape Town City’s new midfielder Katlego Mokhuoane is a player who feels he is on the rise and ready to make the step-up to South Africa’s top-flight football.

Mokhuoane will be playing in the Premiership for the first time in his career, and the former Free State Stars man said on Monday he was pleased with his decision to join CT City and cannot wait for the start of the new DStv Premiership campaign.

“I am happy to join the club. City is a big club with big expectations, so I am excited. I am looking forward to the new season. I am glad I am here with the coaches and staff welcoming me,” said Mokhuoane, who is hopeful that his arrival at ‘The Citizens’ can inspire the club to return to winning trophies once again.

CT City clinched the Telkom Knockout trophy in their maiden Premiership season back in 2016 and followed it up with the MTN8 title in 2018. But, the Cape-based side’s trophy cabinet has been empty for the past two seasons.

The club has been busy – beefing up the squad with the addition of two goalkeepers Darren Keet and Bongani Mpandle and also young defender Patrick Fisher.

Mokhuoane, who made a good impression at GladAfrica Championship side Stars is the fourth player to be signed with Eric Tinkler set to lead the team ahead of the 2021/22 season.

“I appreciate the opportunity to play for such a big club and help wherever I can. I am looking forward to winning trophies. That’s the reason I am here to win some trophies for the club.”

Mokhuoane has penned a four-year deal that will see him at CT City until at least June 2025.
