Cape Town - Veteran
Cape Town City goalkeeper Shu-Aib Walters believes he is capable of
producing his best form for the side despite playing second fiddle to
Sage Stephens in the 2017/18.
The 36-year-old only recently returned to the starting line-up in the
1-0 win over Bidvest Wits in the Nedbank Cup, as well as the most
recent 1-0 victory over Young Buffaloes in the CAF Confederations Cup.
Nonetheless, the Cape Town-born star remains philosophical about
Stephens starting ahead of him and maintains he can still produce the
goods for the Citizens this season.
Speaking to the Sowetan,
Walters said: "I understand it (playing Stephens) is for the club's
vision. There are a lot of aspects they are taking into consideration.
"There will come a time where they will have to think for the future
of the club. I was out for some weeks in October. It was not easy to
just walk into the team while they were still doing well.
"I reckon that the injury also hammered my progress but am hopeful that I will return to top form soon."
Speaking about the away win over Young Buffaloes in Swaziland in the
Confederations Cup, the keeper added: "This club was founded almost two
years ago and to be part of the first squad to play in Africa for the
first time in the club's history was amazing."
Walters will be hoping to play a part when City next travel to the FNB Stadium to face Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs in an Absa Premiership clash on Saturday.
Kick-off is at 20:15.
