Comitis’ Words To Manyama
John Comitis’ Words To Lebogang Manyama
Cape Town City awarded the captain's armband to Robyn Johannes yesterday but not without Chairman John Comitis expressing some kind words for the departed Lebogang Manyama.
Manyama recently completed his move to the Turkish side, Atiker Konyaspor, where he left behind memories of his stellar 2016/17 season as well as the captain’s armband.
The Mother City-based club officially announced, Johannes as the new team’s captain with immediate effect and Chairman Comitis shared the following words about Manyama, who captained City in their Cup-winning 2016/17 campaign.
“I have to replace Lebogang Manyama, who made his first appearance on the weekend (for Konyaspor). He led this club by example, as a true trooper, as a guy that played with full passion, care, concern, responsibility and credibility. We are delighted to see him prosper and go to bigger Arena’s in football and in some small way, Cape Town City has helped changed his life. That was a great achievement for us as a club,” Comitis told the media in a press conference yesterday.
