Cape Town City confirmed the signing of exciting Greek centre-back Giannis Potouridis on Monday.

The 27-year-old boasts an impressive CV as he previously played for Greek powerhouse Olympiacos, who regularly feature in the UEFA Champions League.

It is hoped that the left-footed defender will inspire the Citizens to greater heights amidst a bad slump in form.

McCarthy will point to the fact that the run included notable draws against the likes of Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates and SuperSport United.
