‘The time is right’, Leeuwenburgh set to leave CT City


Cape Town City goalkeeper Peter Leeuwenburgh is expected to to join Netherlands legend Arjen Robben at Eredivisie side FC Groningen.

It has been reported that Leeuwenburgh, who has been CT City’s first-choice keeper since his arrival in South Africa back in 2018 would depart at the end of the season.

The Ajax Amsterdam academy graduate has made 85 appearances for the club over the last three seasons.

“I sat down with Cape Town City, with trainer Jan Olde Riekerink and the club management, and made my wishes known. I have just turned 27, if I really want something as a goalkeeper then it must be done now,” Leeuwenburgh told De Stentor.

“The time is right; I have become a much better and stronger goalkeeper. I am convinced that I can take on the premier league.”

Leeuwenburgh has amassed 85 appearances for the Citizens over the past three years, with his last match being the clean sheet that he kept in the 3-0 victory over SuperSport United last Saturday at Cape Town Stadium.

FC Groningen’s current No 1 Sergio Padt has confirmed a move to Bulgarian giants Ludogorets for next year.
