Another exit at Cape Town City has been confirmed to the Siya crew.

Sjoerd Woudenberg, the goalkeeper coach, is believed to be pursuing another challenge, though it isn’t clear yet where he is headed.

“Yes, he is leaving and came to say goodbye to the players this morning,” a source confirmed.

The Dutchman worked closely with Peter Leeuwenburgh, the City first team goalkeeper the club has since confirmed is returning to his native country in Holland to join FC Groningen at the start of next season.

According to insiders, Woudenberg also enjoyed a good relationship with City coach Jan Olde Riekerink and the likelihood that he, too, is heading out the door could have affected his decision to resign from his post.

Riekerink was on Monday placed on “administrative leave” by the Citizens, with Diogo Peral asked to take over the reins in the interim.

Eric Tinkler has already been liked with a return to the Mother City after Siya sources informed the crew he has held a meeting with chairman John Comitis over that possibility, though Riekerink would have to be officially sacked first.

Woudenberg this afternoon, officially announced his departure on his Instagram account. 

“It's time to say goodbye... I want to thank the club and the chairman (for) respecting my decision to leave Cape Town City. Now it's time to reload and look forward to what the future will bring. Cape Town, you were amazing!”

City are now expected to fill three vacancies in the coming weeks – a goalkeeper to replace Leeuwenburgh, a goalkeeper coach and, probably, a head coach.
