Matthews Surfaces At Cape Town City
Tashreeq Matthews is training with Cape Town City.
Tashreeq Matthews has surfaced at Cape Town City, where he is training under the watchful eye of Coach Benni McCarthy.
Matthews, a product of the Ajax Cape Town development system, has been in a dispute with the Urban Warriors and the player’s representatives, European-based On Target.
Last year Ajax CEO, Ari Efstathiou, went into detail with the Siya crew, explaining the club’s bursary system, which is part of their youth system. At the time Matthews was linked with a move abroad and was seeking his clearance from SAFA, while Efstathiou had explained that the player had an agreement with Ajax, as per their bursary system.
Matthews has now surfaced at Ajax’s cross-city rivals, Cape Town City. He was spotted at training today, where he was put through the paces by McCarthy. It is yet to be confirmed if the club is looking to put pen to paper with the 17-year-old attacker.
The striker has been touted as one of Mzansi’s future stars, having been noticed playing for South Africa’s U20 side. Last year he scored in the U20’s 2-1 victory over England.
