South African Premiership side Cape Town City yesterday announced the addition of versatile Namibian international Aprocius Petrus to its ranks.

The move comes after a stellar showing for the Brave Warriors at the recent Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast where they reached the knockout stage for the first time.

The 24-year-old, who is adept at left-back or as a holding midfielder, has reportedly been training with the Cape Town side since mid-February, impressing head coach Eric Tinkler.

Petrus last featured for Liria Prizren who compete in the Kosovo Superliga where he made 13 appearances this season, contributing two assists and one goal.

“We are delighted to confirm the signing of Namibian international, Aprocius Petrus,” a Cape Town City statement said.

“Welcome to Cape Town City Petrus!”

City were also keen on his compatriot Prins Tjiueza, reaching an agreement in principle, but injury to the nippy attacking midfielder at the end of that famous Afcon run resulted in the move falling through.

A graduate of the Nedbank Namibian Newspaper Cup, Petrus has registered 33 caps for the Brave Warriors since his debut in 2018.

The Citizens currently sit fifth in the DStv Premiership standings just two points off the CAF Champions League places after 20 matches played.

Tinkler’s side next host Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs in a league clash at Athlone Stadium on 30 March.
