Ajax Shed More Light On Coetzee’s Situation

Ajax Cape Town Have Shed More Light On Rivaldo Coetzee’s Situation

By Soccer Laduma - Jul 26, 2017 02:02 PM

Ajax Cape Town revealed that Rivaldo Coetzee’s issues with the club does not relate to whether he wants to stay at Ikamva or not, but is based on the player’s personal concerns.

The club confirmed yesterday that Coetzee has returned to the club after going AWOL for three weeks since the team regrouped for pre-season training.

At the time, it was discovered by the Siya crew that the 20-year-old Bafana Bafana international wanted to force a move away from the Urban Warriors, with another source indicating that the player felt he was not earning a fair wage at the Mother City-based club.

Coetzee has since apologised to the club, his coach and teammates after he accepted a decision made by an internal disciplinary committee.

The Siya crew has since gotten in touch with the club’s Head of Communications, Thabiso ‘Shooz’ Mekuto, to enquire about whether or not Coetzee is part of the club’s plans for the new season.

“Rivaldo (Coetzee) is not in the same boat as Travis (Graham). Those are two different issues. Travis says he wants to move on, Rivaldo has personal issues, not football issues, personal issues relating to his contract and relating to his salary,” Mekuto told Soccer Laduma.

“Rivaldo is not saying “I don’t want to play for Ajax”, he is saying, “I deserve more”, Travis is saying, “I want to move on” so when you say you want to move on you’re saying that you don’t want to be part of the plans, but when you are saying that you want to earn more, you are just saying – I just need to be remunerated, it is nothing about football,”

“Rivaldo is training to get himself fit to be part of the team, Travis is coming to work because he is contracted, and it is two different things.

“Rivaldo’s issue is straight forward, he didn’t report to work like any other, then you go to DC. DC has their own findings, you accept, you had obviously the right to object, which in this case Rivaldo has accepted not objected and he is back to training.

“Whether between him, his manager and the boss made other arrangements, that’s one thing. But, with him and the coach, it is whether they have decided to elevate him (Coetzee) to fitness, the outside influence on whether he is in or not, is gone now. He is back to training like any other player,” Mekuto concluded.

I hope this boy would be called to internal D.C and be punished hardly... The guy has set down with his adviser( agent) went throught the offer he then made it a contract...! He knew the durartion of it. He knew abt the payments. .(including) bonuses..! So if he had gone to review with club. Bt the club saw no need for so be it, he can't therefore try and cupture the club...! Bcz he fills he is getting far lesser than others. He must then wait for the current contract allows him to negotiate for better one...

@EagleEye the boi is simply saying I don't mind who I play for but this is how much I deserve. He actually has options with downs n bucs after his services, now the ball is on Ajax court to say we can't give you what you want we'll then let you go to either downs or bucs but I believe that if Ajax can meet the player's demands then all this mess will be over. Fact: he knows how much he's worth so does Ajax, downs n bucs

Is his agent not negotiating with the club? And he thinks other clubs would sign him after he stayed away? What guaranteed is there that he will not do this again? Football suicide.

The fact of the matter is that the situation emanates from the other team promising him a higher salary. That carrot has attracted so many players and the club Bosses and Agents are exacerbating the whole scenario.
