Cape Town City midfielder Travis Graham slowly getting back to his best

The 25-year-old midfielder is confident he will add value at City

Cape Town City midfielder Travis Graham has revealed why he left Ajax Cape Town after joining the Citizens as a free agent last week.

“For now, it’s just trying to get back to the market and try to get as much games and help the team,” Graham said on IOL.

“I won’t say I am 100% fit to start, but I will help wherever I can. (Coach) Benni (McCarthy) understands the situation and I have taken most of his advice,” he said.

Graham fell out of favour at Ajax after refusing to extend his contract with the Mother City side.

“Look, what happened at Ajax happened, and it’s in the past - it was disappointing considering that I’d been with the club for a while,” Graham explained.

“I did ask to leave, but unfortunately we were not on the same page. They put me out in the stands although I still wanted to play, because they wanted to punish me,” he continued.

“In fact, it was my last year of my contract and I wanted the club to gain something from me but things didn’t go the way we planned,” added the midfielder.

Graham was part of City's MultiChoice Diski Challenge (MDC) side that played to a 2-2 draw against Polokwane City last weekend at Makhulong Stadium.

“I haven’t been playing competitively, but ja, slowly but surely, I’ll get there,” he concluded.
