The Siya crew can reveal that Thembinkosi Fanteni started on the bench for Ajax Cape Town in a friendly against German side VfB Stuttgart on Tuesday afternoon.
Fanteni, who has had two fruitful spells with the Urban Warriors previously, is on a mission to revive his career after a failed stint at Wits due to injuries and a lack of game time. He has been back in Cape Town, but only started training with Muhsin Ertugral’s side last week.
If he gets to the right level of fitness and manages to impress, he could prove to be a valuable addition and his experience could be key, especially after the departure of attacking midfielder Lebogang Manyama to SuperSport United.
The crew will continue to monitor Fanteni’s progress at Ajax, so watch this space!
