Ajax Confident To Ruin Chiefs’ CAF Hopes And Stay Up

Ajax Cape Town Determined To Stay Up And Crush Kaizer Chiefs' CAF Dreams

By Shaistah Kader - May 09, 2018 03:29 PM @Shaistah_K

Ajax Cape Town head coach, Muhsin Ertugral says that he is very confident that the team will get a win over Kaizer Chiefs this weekend.

The Urban Warriors will need no less than three points on Saturday when they take on the Soweto giants, who will be playing to seal their spot in the CAF Confederations Cup next season. 

Although still two points above Maritzburg United, the Team of Choice could leapfrog Chiefs to the third position, if they seal a win and Amakhosi lose on Saturday.

On the other hand, Ajax are desperate to avoid going to the relegation play-offs and will have to win on Saturday, while hoping to keep a close eye on the results of SuperSport United, Polokwane City and Baroka FC. 

“We worked on our strengths this week and went into detail - analysing Kaizer Chiefs in depth. At home, it is interesting to see that we have the second-best record this season. Away games were a disaster this season,” Muhsin said on Ajax’s official Twitter account.

“I am confident that we will win on Saturday, we have to win. Everyone wants to play. Everyone wants to be on the field. We have been in this situation before. I remember the game against Kaizer Chiefs here 5 years ago. 

“Kaizer Chiefs are coming here to play, coming here to win! But, that is a blessing in disguise. There is pressure on them, pressure on us. It will be a big game. I really believe that we will do the job on Saturday. The confidence is there. We just
need to put the ball in the back of the net! It’s simple, we win - we stay up!” he added. 

Ajax will welcome Chiefs to the Cape Town Stadium on Saturday, May 12 at 15h00.

@Mpho Bruce Wise words from a wiseman. Thanks for bringing that to our attention. Platinum stars is history as we speak because of that Confed thing.... Few months ago Supersport Utd wre the finalist of that thing, now they're fighting relegation. It took 2 years for Rats to recover from that thing. That's a waste of time to be quite honest

How can they not get deducted points. It’s amazing, the PSL is just letting people do what they want. ? It says in black and white that he should never have played. What a joke

I wish we slice you and you and your Ajax team go down the drain! You are one of the overrated coaches in the PSL.

Chiefs should just give away those three points. The Confederations Cup has proven to have a negative impact on S.A teams. It will not be wise for Chiefs to play the Confed Cup while building with a new Coach.

I also very confident that Ajax and Muhsin will be playing on NFD after losing out on playoffs. Definitely Ajax will be participating on playoffs in few weeks.
