Cape Town City have confirmed the addition of central defender Tshepo Gumede to the squad head coach Eric Tinkler and his technical team are currently assembling.
The news was announced in the following statement issued by the club:
Cape Town City FC has officially signed Tshepo Gumede on a two year deal, with one year option.
Coach Eric Tinkler is very pleased to welcome Tshepo into his squad, “He’s a player I spent time with at Orlando Pirates. I know exactly what he’s worth and he’s a fantastic acquisition for us.”
Club Owner, John Comitis explained that they have been working hard behind the scenes to gather up more players with experience to round off the squad.
“We had lost out on Ngalo and Mzava, when we saw an opportunity to press and get Gumede. We believe we have a Top PSL player with experience in Gumede, we know that we can build our defence around him.”
Gumede, who was formerly signed to Orlando Pirates, began his youth career at Arcadia Shepherds before joining the SuperSport United academy back in 2009.
