Cape Town - Cape Town City boss John Comitis remains hopeful that former captain Lebogang Manyama will return to the club.

The 27-year-old was named the Absa Premiership Player of the Season two seasons ago after scoring 13 goals and guiding the club to Telkom Knockout triumph.

Manyama soon signed for Konyaspor but after failing to make an impact at the Turkish club, Manyama returned to South Africa - he is currently training on his own since being released.

“I had a chat with Lebo and he knows where his home is," Comitis told the Mercury.

“At this stage he is not sure (where he wants to go). We will find out next week what he is thinking.

“Everyone would love to have a player of his quality and we are no different.

“I've known Lebo since he was 21. I worked with him when he was still young at Ajax.

“As I said we had a chat and I offered him some sort of advice and we will hear from him in a week," Comitis added.

The Citizens though may have to fend off interest from other PSL clubs for the Bafana Bafana attacker - Gauteng giants Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns are both reportedly also interested.
