City Pip Sundowns To Bafana Starlet

Gift Links Has Completed A Move To Cape Town City

By Joe Crann - Jul 05, 2018 07:52 AM @YesWeCrann
Cape Town City have completed the signing of Bafana Bafana starlet, Gift Links, beating off competition from Mamelodi Sundowns for his signature.
 
 
The 19-year-old impressed for Bafana in the recent COSAFA Cup as he played his role in helping them lift the plate trophy, and his performances for Alassiouty attracted interest in the Egyptian Premier League last season.
 
Links was left to find a new home when the chairman of the Saudi Sports Authority, Turki Al-Sheikh, bought Alassiouty and changed their name to Pyramids FC, with the squad being told that they were welcome to move on as the new owner spends millions of dollars on players from overseas.
 
Now, with Links looking to keep up his momentum, it has been confirmed by City that he will be donning their colours in 2018/19. The Siya crew revealed earlier that City was a club keen to bring him on board, and he has now been announced by the club on social media.
 
Siyavuma Sports Group, the player’s agency, told the Siya crew, “The biggest pull was the fact that Benni knows a top player when sees one. It’s a big move for Gift and it says a lot him that City were prepared to break their transfer record fee for them. It shows (the) intention of (the) club.
 
"We see this as another stage of his development, he’s still a teenager and will only be 20 when the 2018/19 season finishes. We think he’s got a lot of potential and definitely see him back overseas again in the future.”

Some people are greedy hey. That's how they weakened other teams in the league. By signing every player available, benching others, loaning others out while adding clauses that those players cannot play against them. The chickens are coming home to roost. That created imbalance in their remuneration system cos you then end up signing a player like Lebese, paying him more that what Billiat was earning. Khama wouldn't stand for it. So he joined a well managed club.

Are Downs competing for everything or media just want to make mockery of my beloved Club?

@PROPHET OF DOOM Laduma don't you find it embarrassing to be against such a successful team like sundown's? Yesterday a host of team wanted Gift today only Sundown's?

@PROPHET OF DOOM you are right, he also mentioned Chiefs. All this thing of mentioning Chiefs where it doesn't feature is not done by only YOU opposition fans, also editors do.

This Boy should have stayed in Egypt because there were offers for him there.
