Spurs To Keep Squad Together

No matter the outcome of the season, the Cape Town Spurs board has confirmed that they will not be parting ways with any of the players.

Spurs are currently 16th in the DStv Premiership and with four matches remaining, relegation is on the card for the team who were only promoted at the end of last season.

Spurs have said their plan is to keep their squad together. Club CEO, Alexi Efstathiou confirmed their outlook on the matter. 

“We have four matches to play so it’s not over. Our players need to understand that next season, those that have contracts will remain with us. If they want to play in the PSL they have four matches left to ensure that for themselves.  Those contracts that are coming to an end will be decided on being extended depending on performance and of course the results.“

 “We’ve been together for a few seasons now and the club has spent a lot of resources on this group of players. It will be a wasted investment to break up the group now as we are building a team for the future . 

“There may be players who have been ill-advised by their management/agents on this, so it’s important for the club to clear up this issue to avoid any disappointments. 

“Players are contracted to the club, so if we have not approached a player on his future it’s because there is no need to do so. The players should understand that the destiny of which league they play next year is fully in their hands. It’s now over to them.” 

Spurs face Royal AM away on Tuesday, before travelling to SuperSport United on Friday, and will need to win both to keep their hopes alive.
