• CT City set for reinforcements

    Eric Tinkler

    Cape Town City coach Eric Tinkler says his side will look to acquire a few players during the transfer season, but warned against making too many signings.

    The Citizens enjoyed a highly-successful debut campaign in the Absa Premiership as they clinched the Telkom Knockout trophy, as well as securing third spot on the table, making them eligible to play in the Caf Confederation Cup.

    City ended their season with a 4-2 loss to Polokwane City, and victory could have seen them seal their spot in the Caf Champions League after Sundowns drew 2-2 with relegated Highlands Park.

    After the loss to Rise and Shine, Tinkler suggested that he would make a few signings to improve his squad for next season.

    “There are a few areas where we want to look at and just strengthen the squad in terms of the depth that we have,” he told reporters.

    “We are not planning to increase the numbers. I think it (a small squad size) worked for us this season. That is what kept that unity in the squad.

    “The minute you start adding more numbers, the more chance of players not being involved and it’s those players who become rotten apples and start spoiling everything and dragging this one and that one (down) with them.

    “So I think our numbers will remain the same, but what also becomes important – and we have that opportunity now – is to ensure we have a good (MultiChoice) Diski team.

    “A competitive Diski team with some older players, younger players and players that should we need to drag them in, we can drag them in at any given time,” he concluded.
