Cape Town City chairman John Comitis has expressed shock over Orlando Pirates action of keeping Abbubaker Mobara who Cape Town City recently sign, on bench, pointing out that the player deserve not only to play in SA but in Europe




“I know Abbubaker since he was a 12-year-old at Ajax. He’s a player that is capable of playing in three different positions. He can play as a right back, central defender and as a midfielder,” Comitis told Isolezwe.


“He’s a type of a player that all clubs can definitely want. Signing him is like signing three players and I expect a lot from him,” he said.

It was earlier reported that the former South African junior international has signed a four-year deal as he returns home to revive his career under coach Benni McCarthy.

“He played regularly when he arrived at Pirates and his quality was there for all to see. I was surprised to see him sitting on the bench, but he is back at home now,” he continued.

“By signing him, we can win the league because we have done everything and talked enough. Now is the time to act,” added the Citizens boss.

Moreover, Comitis says they are now capable of winning the Premier Soccer League (PSL) title because they have grown as a team.
