Coetzee’s Ajax Absence Explained

Rivaldo Coetzee's Absence From Ajax Cape Town Has Been Explained

By Soccer Laduma - Jul 08, 2017 02:54 PM
Ajax Cape Town defender, Rivaldo Coetzee, is absconding from training with the club after becoming frustrated at the club’s reluctance to earn a better wage or let him leave.
 
 
The Siya crew reported earlier this week that the 20-year-old defender had not returned to Ajax for preseason this year ahead of the 2017/18 campaign, with the club’s Head of Football, Mich d’Avray confirming his absence but not the reasons why.
 
Now, with the player standing his ground, the crew have been informed that he is ‘fed up’ at the club, feeling that he is not earning a wage relative to his position and that they are deliberately halting his progress and the chance to move on.
 
Siya sources have revealed that Mamelodi Sundowns and other PSL clubs are interested in the player locally, while there has also been numerous enquiries for his services from clubs overseas.
 
Meanwhile, another source explained the reasons for Coetzee’s decision not to train, saying, “Coetzee is tired of feeling disrespected at Ajax. There has been interest in him from clubs locally and abroad, but Ajax are wanting a completely unreasonable fee to let him leave.
 
“They want to charge clubs a fortune to sign him, but have players at the club earning four times what he gets. Going AWOL has been left as his only option. He’s been incredibly loyal to the club and loves Ajax, but he’s got to a point where enough is enough and he needs to be earning a wage befitting of their personal valuation of him.”
 
The crew also reached out to Mike Makaab, the player’s representative, who said, “I’m currently in negotiations with Ajax about Rivaldo, but I won’t be commenting any further on it at this stage.”
 
Coetzee still has two years left to run on his current deal with Ajax after they exercised an option in his deal in May, and in order to settle this matter it is likely that he will be given an improved deal or be sold before the transfer window closes.

Respect your contract. They gave him a contract then he signed all of a sudden he feels disrespected, these guys get wrong advice from people who pretend they love them

When he renewed his contract why he didn't ask for the salary he wants? He is Greedy and I blame his representatives. Football Agents are very greedy and misleading they always look for new employers for them to get their share.
