CAPE TOWN CITY ANNOUNCE NEW SIGNING
The Cape Town-based club recently announced the signing of American-born midfielder Jordan Bender as they bolster their attacking midfield for the next campaign. The former United States U/20 international was signed from Orlando City which play in the MLS.
“Playing for Orlando City in the professional environment, it was hard over there because I was competing in my first rookie season with Nani for a spot on the left-wing. Pato was also there, but it was good to learn from those players in terms of their professionalism, their skill level to get to the top,” Bender told Cape Town City media.
He believes he’ll prove himself at Villa City, “A lot of young players get super discouraged when they don’t get the success early that other young players are getting. A lot of people quit too soon because they see how difficult it really is. You have to keep plugging away at it and see what happens. I believe here at Cape Town City is the perfect opportunity to prove myself as a player,” he said.
CITY TO OPEN LEAGUE WITH DOWNS
