Cape Town City coach Eric Tinkler has challenged winger Bhongolwethu Jayiya to be more consistent in his performances, something which the former Bidvest Wits player has struggled to achieve in recent months.
“It’s great for Bhongo. I’ve been on his case for quite a while now because I know what he is capable of. I found Bhongo back in 2007. So, I know about him and his history and I expected him to achieve a lot more than what he has as a footballer,” Tinkler told the media .
Jayiya and Tinkler worked together at Bidvest Wits in the 2010/11 season when the Soweto-born made his professional debut.
His performance helped the Citizens return to the summit of the Premiership standings, a point ahead of second-placed Bidvest Wits.
“And that’s what he is capable of. He needs now to become more consistent. That’s what he has become very important in his game,” Tinkler said.
Meanwhile, Jayiya dedicated the result and his man of the match accolade to the rest of his teammates and club management.
“It was all about the result today. We had to assert ourselves. The past two games, we didn’t play well, so we had to come out today and play our football. This trophy is for my teammates and the management,” Jayiya said.
