Hatem Trabelsi and Nourdin Boukhari will not be present on Ajax's first training, on Sunday 8 January. Reason for their absence is that both are preparing for the Africa Cup, which will be played from the end of January in Egypt.
Trabelsi plays for title defenders Tunisia, Boukhari for Morocco. Both countries cannot face each other before semi finals.
Boukhari plays with Morocco in group A, and they face Egypt, Ivory Coast and Lybia. Trabelsi and Tunisia are in group C, with South Africa, Guinea and Zambia. The African nations play for the title from 20 January to 10 February.
