City snatch disgraced Lakay from Sundowns



Cape Town City have re-signed left-back winger Lyle Lakay from reigning DStv Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns. Lakay joins on a one-season loan deal.

Lakay joined Sundowns in July 2018 and he made the left-back position his own as his brilliant performances saw veteran Tebogo Langerman play second fiddle.

Anyone from Siyabonga Zulu and Fares Hachi couldn’t bench Lakay. It was until the arrival of Aubrey Modiba that Lakay had competition.

This season, Modiba has been the preferred choice on the left side of defense and with the arrival of Terrence Mashego, who joined City last week, that means Lakay would fall further down the pecking order.

Lakay reunited with head coach Eric Tinkler, who worked with him during their first two stints with the Mother City-based side.

“It’s a good feeling to be back, I’m excited. There’s a big difference because I’ve grown a lot as a player from the player. I was before. I want to win trophies and I’m going to try to help the team and contribute to the success of the club.
