Mokeke feels he made the right decision in rejoining City
Cape Town City midfielder Thato Mokeke believes he made the right decision in re-joining the club earlier this year. Mokeke was part of City’s first ever season, in the Absa Premiership, when he was on loan from SuperSport United. But on his return to Gauteng, he struggled for game time and ended up moving to Chippa United last year. The utility player then re-joined City in January and has been a key player for Benni McCarthy ever since, featuring in all 15 games since signing. Mokeke says City is a very different club now to the one he played for in their maiden season. The 28-year-old says he has been pleased with his form since joining the team, and says it helps having a coach like McCarthy believing in you. Mokeke has been “Man of the Match” a handful of times already since rejoining City, but he says those personal accolades mean little, as long as the team wins. The former Ajax Cape Town player says it might sound like a cliché but he feels the City team really is like a family. Mokeke says there is a strong confidence at the club that they can achieve things and they are starting to find their identity as a team. Cape Town City will be back in action on the 23rd when they host Highlands Park at the Cape Town Stadium.
