Ajax In ‘Keeper Crisis?

Ajax Cape Town have been dealt a heavy blow with the news that first-choice goalkeeper, Anssi Jaakkola, has been ruled out for around three months.

Jaakkola , 28, has been a regular in Roger de Sa’s starting XI over the past two seasons, playing a vital role in their march to both the Nedbank Cup and MTN8 finals.

To further add to De Sa’s worries, second-choice shot-stopper, Brandon Petersen, is still recovering from a long-term injury, meaning that 19-year-old Jody February is their only goalkeeping option at present.

It is thought that the Finnish ‘keeper will be out until next year as he recovers after injuring tendons in his hand, meaning that it will be February who is expected to deputise in this month’s MTN8 showpiece.

Meanwhile, another option for Ajax is to register 30-year-old goalkeeping coach, Andre Petim, as backup to young February as Petersen recovers from his horrific injury that he sustained in December.
