HE has become a sensation in local football circles and videos of him singing with his beloved Cape Town City Football Club and even other big PSL teams, have gone viral over the last few months. We are of course talking about 7 year old Mateo Manasoukis, the singing, dancing toddler from Cape Town who has crept into the hearts of many local football supporters.
I caught up with him after City’s Nedbank last 16 clash victory over Orlando Pirates at Cape Town Stadium last night and asked him a few questions. He also sang his favourite City song- “Ayaba” with a little help from Julian Bailey, who is the media manager for the club and one or two interested bystanders.
Mateo, who is actually the son of City’s Assistant Manager, Vasili Manasoukis, loves leading his team in pre and post match song and visiting teams and even managers invite him over to their dressing rooms on their visits to Cape Town.
You can regularly see Mateo and what he’s up to by following Cape Town City on Instagram and Twitter on @CapeTownCityFC or hashtag #iamCityFC
