Tjiueza’s deal with Cape Town City put on hold

WINDHOEK: Cape Town City Football Club chairperson, John Comitis has stated that their interest in signing Namibian international player, Prins Tjiueza, has been put on hold due to an injury. During the just-ended African Cup of Nations (AFCON) round of 16 match between Namibia and Angola at the Stadium of Peace in Bouake, Ivory Coast, Tjiueza was stretchered off the field just 17 minutes into the game. The 21-year-old attacking midfielder who plies for KF Liria Prizren, a First Football League team in Kosovo, underwent medicals this week as he was expected to pen a new deal with the South African Premier League club. On Monday, it was revealed on social media that the Namibian footballer's transfer to Cape Town City was cancelled due to failed medicals. In an interview with Nampa on Tuesday, Comitis said that Tjiueza sustained an injury while representing his country and is expected to recover in three months. 'The deal couldn't be completed as we realised that the injury seemed to be more serious than we expected. As a club we were interested in the player's services as he is still young and one that can fit in our plans, but his injury affected that,' he said. He added that although they have not committed to a transfer, they wish the player a speedy recovery and will consider a deal in the future. 'As it stands, he is still a player of Liria Prizren and he has age on his side. We hope he will recover fast, and we might still relook at that deal,' Comitis said. Source: The Namibia Press Agency
