Mkuruva's Future At Cape Town City Clouded With Uncertainty As Club Targets Kaizer Chiefs' Khuzwayo In January

Former Zimbabwe-Warriors number one goalkeeper, Tatenda Mkuruva's future at Cape Town City continues to remain uncertain with the Citizens showing strong interest to swoop Kaizer Chiefs second choice goalkeeper, Brilliant Khuzwayo in January.

The 22-year-old talented Zimbabwe international goalie was brought to Cape Town City during Eric Tinkler's tenure at the club in February 2017 from Harare giants Dynamos F.C after impressing at AFCON finals in Gabon early this year- and is still to make a first team bow under new coach Benni McCarthy.

Ever Since the arrival of McCarthy at City this season, Mkuruva has been relegated to the team's reserve side with Sage Stephens being brought in to cover for Shu-Aib Walters.

However, Mkuruva has recently regained his position as the second choice goalkeeper after the injury of veteran keeper,  Walters, but the future remains clouded for the talented young goalie as McCarthy seems unsatisfied with his services.

Upon his arrival at Cape Town City, McCarthy was linked with another goalie, Bidvest Wits veteran,  Moneeb Josephs, despite having Walters, Sages and Mkuruva in that department already.

Mkuruva was given a two-year contract extension by the Citizens in June that will see him at the club until 2019.

It remains to be seen what the future holds for the highly rated former Zimbabwe number one goalie, who has since lost his Warriors number one jersey, due to lack of first team game time.
