Siwahla Issues Advice To Patosi For First PSL Season
Ayanda Patosi Backed To Do Well In The PSL
Cape Town City’s new signing for the 2017/18 season, Ayanda Patosi, has been backed to succeed at the club by his homeboy, Mkhanyiseli Siwahla.
Patosi will be playing in the PSL for the first time in his career. The midfielder made his professional debut with KSC Lokeren in Belgium, having joined the club from ASD Academy of Cape Town in 2011.
“Cape Town City is a good team with good management. I have worked with John Comitis in the past and he is a very good club boss. He has very good knowledge of football. I rate him among the people that should be involved in football for a very long time. He has the knowledge of grooming a player from a young age to making him a star.
“He (Patosi) is in a good space. He is in a good team and I hope that he will grab the opportunity in a right way,” said Siwahla.
Patosi, 24, has been handed the number 10 jersey at the Mother City-based club coached by Benni McCarthy.
Siwahla says he expected the player to continue playing overseas.
“I thought he would stay overseas and play there for longer. He started (playing professional football) overseas and everything about him at the highest level has been European based.
“Nonetheless, I wish him everything of the best. Since I don’t have time, I don’t talk to him often. We don’t communicate because I’m busy with my life and he is busy with his. I wish him the best in whatever he is doing football wise. He is a boy from Kasi (Khayelitsha), so he is in a right place (in Cape Town),” he said.
