come by in the first half of the campaign, with Citizens boss Benni McCarthy
boasting a wealth of riches in the middle of the park.

Town City midfielder Mpho Matsi will spend the remainder of the season on loan
at Maritzburg United.
"Best of luck to Mporoza and we look forward to
welcoming him back in 6 months."
The addition of Matsi will undoubtedly be a major boost for
Maritzburg, with the team currently rooted to the foot of the table on 11

centre of defence.
Matsi joined Cape Town City along with many of his
team-mates in 2016 after Mpumalanga Black Aces sold its Premiership status to
the Cape side, while he was previously on the books of University of Pretoria.
