CAPE TOWN – A day after losing winger Lyle Lakay to Mamelodi Sundowns, Cape Town City have boosted their attack by signing Siphelele Mthembu.
The 30-year-old striker joins from Free State Stars, where he had scored five goals last season.
The experienced Mthembu, who hails from Melmoth in KwaZulu-Natal – which is about 50km east of Nkandla – is one of the more well-travelled forwards in the PSL.
He turned out for Orlando Pirates a decade ago, and has since featured for Bloemfontein Celtic, Golden Arrows, Platinum Stars and Kaizer Chiefs. Mthembu still played for Free State Stars in last week’s pre-season event Maize Cup in Orkney, which was won by Chiefs.
“CTCFC can confirm the signing of South African striker Siphelele Mthembu to bolster the forward options ahead of the new season!” Cape Town City said on Twitter on Wednesday.
