Relegation-threatened CT Spurs set to part ways with attacker

Relegation-threatened Cape Town Spurs are set to part ways with one of their attackers as they continue to re-structure the squad ahead of the second half of the DStv Premiership season.

CT Spurs gained promotion to the Premiership at the start of the 2023/24 campaign after winning the PSL promotion/relegation playoffs.

The Cape Town-based outfit has had a dismal start to life in the elite league. They have suffered 14 defeats in 16 games played in the league so far.

CT Spurs only managed to win one match while drawing another one, and they are rooted at the bottom of the log with four points. The poor start to the season saw CT Spurs fire the head coach, Shaun Bartlett, and he was replaced by the well-travelled Ernst Middendorp.

While CT Spurs continues to flirt with relegation to the Motsepe Foundation Championship, they are lining up an exit for one of their attackers.


Leo Thethani, who struggled to break into CT Spurs’ starting line-up, is set to leave the club in search of regular game-time elsewhere.

The former South Africa junior international featured in six matches in all competitions for The Urban Warriors.

“Cape Town Spurs proposed that we get a loan move for Leo Thethani so that he can get more game time,” his agent Ntobatsi Masegela told FARPost.

“The challenge with a loan move is that it’s not favourable for the player because he’s 25 years old. We can’t be having a player go on loan at that age.

“So the most suitable and amicable solution right now would be for Thethani to move elsewhere on a permanent deal. He’s a very talented player and it’s frustrating to be sitting on the bench.

“The player himself doesn’t want to go on loan. He wants a fresh start because the environment at Spurs hasn’t been good because of their position on the log.”
