Cape Town - Cape Town City striker Siphelele Mthembu says he will do whatever it takes to become a success for the Citizens in 2018/19. 

The powerful forward started his first match for the club during last Saturday's 2-0 victory over SuperSport United, and made an impact before being taken off for Matthew Rusike. 

The 30-year-old arrived from Free State Stars in the off-season as City became the seventh team he has joined during his nine years in the Premiership. 

Despite having something of a journeyman career and not possessing a prolific goal return, the player takes the view that he has a major opportunity to shine in the Mother City. 

Speaking to Kickoff, he said: "I'm a hard worker, I push a lot and am very dedicated in what I do. 

"For me, it's not about proving to people how good I am, but it's about helping the team I play for. Now I'm looking forward to making history with a good team. 

"I take my past as a positive, something that will push me to say, 'If they say something, let them say that'. Personally, I'm just there in my zone, focused and remaining positive about life."
