Cape Town - Cape Town City boss John Comitis has revealed that the club had not absorbed the former workers Mpumalanga Black Aces in the new structure.

After purchasing Aces last month, Comitis moved the club to the Mother City and change its name. The only member of the backroom staff who kept his job is goalkeeping coach Calvin Marlin.

"Contracts that were still valid for this coming season were all respected and honoured," Comitis told KickOff.

"If players' contracts could be renewed but were not, then that's the choice that was made by the previous owners on the basis that they knew they were selling the club.

"Every person that was employed by the club has been settled by the previous owners. We didn't take the team manager because we've got administrators here in Cape Town that know the Cape Town way."

Eric Tinkler was appointed the new head coach, Ian Taylor as assistant coach and Craig Rosslee the technical director.
