Victor Obinna To Make Debut Against Pirates?
Cape Town City’s Victor Obinna could make his official debut for the club against a side who were believed to have shown a keen interest in the player’s services.
City confirmed the signing of the former Inter Milan striker last week, September 13, with the Siya crew subsequently revealing that Orlando Pirates were also keen on adding the player to their books for the 2017/18 season.
However, it was City who won the race for the player’s signature, with Head Coach Benni McCarthy recently revealing that his friendship with the 30-year-old played a big role in luring the player to the Mother City-based club.
City will travel away to the Orlando Stadium tomorrow, September 19 where they will lock horns with the Buccaneers in an Absa Premiership encounter.
Siya sources have since revealed that Obinna’s paperwork has been finalised and the player could make his official debut in the blue and gold colours against Pirates tomorrow.
City are currently in sixth place on the Absa Premiership league standings, after suffering their first defeat of the campaign at the hands of Kaizer Chiefs last week, September 13.
