Cape Town City assistant coach, Vasili Manousakis praised Ayanda Patosi for his hard work last night.

Speaking to the media, Manousakis who stood in for the absent Benni McCarthy, revealed that the only issue with Patosi is his fitness levels, otherwise, he rates him to be one of the best number 10s in the league. 

“With Pato, it really is just a fitness issue, he is trying to work hard, he’s lost 2kg, and so we have seen some improvement,” Manousakis said after the game. 

“He is not the quickest player in the PSL, but he is deadly and he always offers you something, there were thoughts, we thought about bringing in Kateregga. 

“The delivery is unbelievable from Pato (Patosi) and the second goal, he has delivered and you can’t take that away from him. We are on his case because he is one of the best number 10s in the league. If you look at losing Lebo Manyama in that position and you look around and is there anyone else that you want? It’s Ayanda Patosi but you want top conditions,” he added.
