Ajax Cape Town can tread in their Amsterdam counterpart’s footsteps this Saturday evening. The team can post the team’s greatest achievement even by becoming champion by winning last match of the season against number 12 Maritzburg.
Ajax Cape Town leads the PSL (South Africa’s Eredivisie) with 59 points in 29 matches. Orlando Pirates follow two points behind, and Kaizer Chiefs is third with 56 points. If Cape Town wins, it will be Premier Soccer League champion.
Foppe de Haan was at the press conference at the Ikamva training complex. “ We will win it”, is the headline on Ajax Cape Town’s official website. “ We’ve played very well this seson” , explains De Haan on the website. “ We’ve lost a couple of times because we weren’t concentrated during the match. We trained well this week and the players believe in it. They are reacting well to the attention they are getting.”
De Haan has a virtually complete group at his disposal. He’s only missing
Granwald Scott due to an injury, and Terror Fanteni due to a suspension.
