Top 10 Players That Played For Both Bucs & Ajax

Orlando Pirates announced earlier on Tuesday morning that they had agreed terms with Ajax Cape Town for the transfer of Abbubaker Mobara and Riyaad Norodien, and based on the relationship between the two teams, we look at 10 players that have featured for both clubs in the past.
 
 
Moeneeb Josephs
 
‘Slim Kat’ began his career at Cape Town Spurs at 17 before spending seven years at Ajax Cape Town after it was established. He moved to Bidvest Wits in 2006 before his big money move to Orlando Pirates in 2008. At Bucs, Moeneeb become a household name among the club's fans because of his match antics and helped lead Pirates to a host of trophies.
 
Wayne Roberts
 
Roberts made the move to the Buccaneers in 1999 in a swap deal that saw versatile defender Sam Pam make the switch to join Ajax.
 
Sam Pam
 
The Nigerian defender was spotted by Pirates in the CAF Champions League after Bucs knocked out his club. He joined the Soweto giants in 1997 and stayed until 1999, before moving to the Urban Warriors.
 
Shaun Potgieter
 
The Pietermaritzburg-born winger was part of the early days of Ajax Cape Town. He won the Rothmans Cup in 2000 when Ajax surprised Pirates and would then go on to join Bucs, where he was forced to retire from the game due to a horrific knee injury.
 
Josep Ngake
 
The pacy right winger joined Ajax from Pirates in the 2004/05 season, but after only one campaign with the Mother City outfit he parted ways with them after he failed to recover fully from a niggling lower-back injury.
 
Edelbert Dinha
 
The former tough tackling midfielder made the move to South Africa from CAPS United in his native Zimbabwe to join Ajax in 1998. After his impressive displays for the Urban Warriors, he was snapped up by Pirates in 2002, where he spent four years notching up over 50 appearances for Bucs. 
 
Clifford Ngobeni
 
A talented but injury-prone midfielder, Ngobeni started his senior career at Ajax where he spent five years before joining the Buccaneers in 2010, but was once again frozen out due to his regular injury troubles.
 
Junaid Hartley
 
Perhaps one of the most talented and skilful midfielders to come out of Cape Town during his era, Hartley turned professional at 16 while within Wits University's ranks. In 2000 he joined Pirates from the now defunct Seven Stars but only spent one season before his move to Gauteng where he joined Moroka Swallows. In 2002 Hartley returned to Cape Town to join Ajax.
 
Sameegh Doutie
 
Also a product of the Ajax youth development, Doutie spent over a decade at the Urban Warriors which earned him the move to Pirates in 2011. Due to a lack of game time at the club, he left after just a single season. 
 
Thembinkosi 'Terror' Fanteni 
 
‘Terror’ had a relatively successful spell at Ajax after joining them from city neighbours Mother City. Between 2005 and 2008 he netted 27 goals in 67 appearances in the red and white before a big move to Europe where he turned out for Israeli Premier League outfit Maccabi Haifa. In 2009 he returned to Mzansi to join Pirates on loan from Haifa but failed to replicate his goalscoring prowess and was offloaded after just one season, after which he returned to Ajax until 2012.
