Cape Town – Absa Premiership outfit Cape Town City have announced the signing of Greek centre-back Giannis Potouridis.

The 27-year-old joins the Citizens with immediate effect as the club struggles with defensive options.

At the moment, Taariq Fielies remains sidelined due to injury since the start of the season while former captain Robyn Johannes departed last season and was not replaced.

Head coach Benni McCarthy has urged club owner John Comitis to solve their defensive issues with signing more but the former Ajax Cape Town boss refused to add more players to City’s books for the 2019/20 season.

However, it seems that the club owner has taken the advice of the coach with their latest addision 

Potouridis previously played across Europe for Larissa, Novara, Ofi Crete and most notably Greek giants Olympiacos.
