Ajax Coach Explains Where Serero Must Improve

Thulani Serero's club coach Frank de Boer has revealed the Mzansi star's best qualities, but also explained where the Bafana Bafana midfielder needs to improve.

Serero was, once again, a late substitute in Ajax Amsterdam's Europa League clash against Molde on Thursday night and only made a single one-touch pass before the final whistle.

Ajax assistant coach Hennie Spijkerman has given some insights into Serero's strengths, which were backed up by de Boer.

"Pressuring going forward, knowing when your teammate needs to release and win the ball, that's where Thulani is good," he said, as quoted by Ajax Showtime.

"Perhaps the best in this situation," added head coach de Boer.

"Thulani has many qualities, but he is not the man for the final pass, and not cool enough in front of goal."

Serero remains hopeful he will turn things around in Amsterdam, and will try to convince the coach he is worthy of a spot in the starting XI with actions rather than words.

"Under Frank de Boer, it is simple: the best plays," Cream said.

"So if I do not play, I try to make sure I'm the best I can be.

"I do not talk about it with the coach. I never did. I'm not much of a talker. I have to show what I can."

Serero has only featured for eight minutes in the Dutch Eredivisie this season and recently played for Ajax's B side after De Boer announced the 25-year-old is only his fifth-choice midfielder.
