Cape Town - Cape Town City coach Benni McCarthy has thanked his chairman John Comitis for signing former Orlando Pirates playmaker Mpho Makola.

Makola penned a two-year contract on Tuesday following his earlier exit from Pirates, where he spent a successful seven years as a Sea Robber.

Speaking of joining the Citizens, the 33-year-old said: "I think the club has been growing in leaps and bounds, I think it's a great team and they are headed in the right direction.

"It feels like home already. I think it's a brand on its own - even in Joburg. You know, I'm from 'Alex' [Alexandra township] and people there usually support Chiefs of Pirates, but in the past year or so, I've seen Cape Town City t-shirts.

"So, it just shows that the club is actually going somewhere, and people are actually taking notice of their good work."

Nonetheless, McCarthy expressed gratitude to boss Comitis for making the deal happen for the attacking midfielder.

He said on social media: "I'm super happy and excited for the signing of Bibo, I have to thank my Chairman JC for this one - my Big Fish."
