Bafana Bafana midfielder Thulani Serero who was snubbed for the 2015 AFCON is still side-lined for Ajax due to a groin strain.
The Dutch champions face AZ Alkmaar in the Eredivisie tomorrow but Serero didn’t make the 18-man match day squad.
Serero already missed Ajax’s 1-0 defeat to Vitesse last weekend as the gap to log leaders PSV opened to four points.
The Mzansi star is one of seven Ajax players who are currently sidelined due to injury, and it wasn’t confirmed when he will return.
The 24-year-old has featured in 26 games for Ajax this season, scoring one goal.
Ajax need to get back to winning ways after drawing against Feyenoord and the defeat to Vitesse to not lose further ground in the Dutch title race.
