Coetzee Still A No Show, Is Sundowns Move Still Likely?

By Soccer Laduma - Jul 21, 2017 04:35 PM

Rivaldo Coetzee has still not reported to training at Ajax Cape Town, with the player’s immediate future still unknown at this point.

The Urban Warriors have been preparing for the upcoming 2017/18 campaign since July 03, with Head Coach Stanley Menzo assessing a number of trialist at the Ikamva-based club.

Ajax is set to depart for Gauteng on Monday, where they will further their pre-season training, with the team expected to take part in a few friendly encounters.

However, at this point, it seems that Coetzee will not be travelling with the team, as he has still not shown up for training with the team currently in their third week of club duty. This according to Siya sources.

As reported in last week’s edition of Soccer Laduma, Orlando Pirates have joined Mamelodi Sundowns in the race to sign the defender, with the player’s agent, Mike Makaab, indicating that Coetzee’s camp was currently in talks with Ajax at the time, however, would not reveal anything further.

Siya sources have indicated that the player feels that he is not earning a fair salary and is looking to force a move away from Ikamva.

Coetzee still has two more years to run on his existing deal with Ajax and is obliged to report to training despite being unhappy with his situation. As revealed earlier this week, Ajax has fined the player for breaching the rules of his contract.

The club’s CEO, Ari Efstathiou, is currently out of the country and is set to return next week. It remains to be seen whether a decision on the immediate future of the Bafana Bafana international will be made in the coming days and whether a move to Sundowns is still on the cards despite the player’s current situation.

@Lets Talk Football what you're saying is not true. Pogba holds the world expensive player records, but about 20 players who earns more than him.

it's amazing how in the psl, a player can be the most expensive in terms of transfer fee yet can be one of the least paid players. Unlike in europe where players with expensive price tags are further tied down with considerable salaries. Cotzee i feel ya pain man.

many players are fooled by salary and not learning from what happened to many players who ran to the teams with a different style of play and end up loosing a touch. Rivaldo watch out you might be next

His attitude may not work in his favor,I remember Real Madrid opting against signing Vidal due to his attitude,hence his move to Bayern

that behaviour is unacceptable,staying away is last stupid thing a professional player could ever do,who said he must sign long term contract he must honour his contract and stop messing around is damaging his reputation and the club as well.

Ajax Cape Town captain Travis Graham is being forced to train alone at Ikamva after refusing to sign a new deal with the Urban Warriors. The 24-year-old midfielder previously informed KickOff that he was looking to enter into an amicable discussion to leave the club he joined as a youth product.
