The PSL have released the list of players registered by the respective clubs for the 2013/14 Absa Premiership season, so far.
Ajax Cape Town has seen a number of changes to their opening few fixtures which may have broken their momentum early on in the season. The Urban Warriors have played only two matches since the season started on August 2, following a series of postponements.
Head coach Muhsin Ertugral has brought back the players who turned Ajax into title contenders in recent seasons. The likes of Nathan Paulse, Franklin Cale, Dominic Isaacs have all returned this season, to help improve on last season’s abysmal Absa Premiership campaign.
With boardroom squabbles now a thing of the past for Ajax, the focus has now shifted to sorting their on-field problems out.
