Chumani Butsaka touches on Urban Warriors captaincy

Cape Town Spurs midfielder Chumani was recently granted the club captaincy and the 22-year-old has spoken about the next change in his journey with the team.

Butsaka was nominated by coach Ernst Middendorp to be the captain for the second half of the season and has been quite instrumental for the team since they’ve picked up decent form over the last few matches.

“I’m grateful. Most of the players want to be in this position that I’m in, I just want to thank the technical staff for trusting me to do the job,” he said.

After having a rocky start to the season, Butsaka also touched on how he feels about tackling the rest of the campaign.

“We had a bumpy start in the first leg, so now we just have to rectify the mistakes that we made and play until the last whistle.” 

The Urban Warriors have played a huge role in the PSL in terms of developing players and promoting them to the senior side and when asked about that fact, Butsaka said that Cape Town Spurs has always been a team that’s managed to produce players for overseas teams.

His advice for the academy boys was: “The talent gets you in the building, but hard work keeps you in the building.”
