Cape Town - Cape Town City have announced that Thamsanqa Mkhize will skipper the team this coming season following the departure of Robyn Johannes to Wits.

Johannes wore the captain's armband last term and led the team to the MTN8 final in October after a flying start to proceedings, which saw City challenging for the Premiership title early on.

But Benni McCarthy's side endured two massive slumps either side of the new year and dropped out of contention to finish 20 points adrift of champions Mamelodi Sundowns in fifth place.

Mkhize is entering his third year at the Mother City outfit and missed just four league games during the 2017/18 campaign, with 25 of his 26 appearances coming as starts.

McCarthy insists there is no better man for the job, saying on the club's Twitter account: "Mkhize is a trooper, a real gladiator for Cape Town City."

A tweet from the Citizens confirmed: "Thamsanqa Mkhize is officially the new Cape Town City FC captain! A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way!"
