Contract Ending, MDC Top Scorer Plots Next Move
Ajax Cape Town To Part Ways With Young Star
The search for a new club for an Ajax Cape Town young star has started, as the player is unlikely to stay with the club beyond the current season.
GN Sports Agency, who are Ajax’s Justin Jacobus’ representatives, have confirmed that the search is underway.
Having returned to the Urban Warriors this past season, after spending the 2016/17 season on loan with Cape Town All Stars in the NFD, the 21-year-old winger spent most of his time at the Ikamva-based outfit playing in the MultiChoice Diski Challenge team.
Speaking to the Siya crew, GN Sports Agency’s Grant Nieuwenhuys confirmed the news.
“Justin Jacobus’ contract is ending at the end of June at Ajax Cape Town. We will be looking at moving him. There is one or two possibilities for him, but I don’t want to divulge the names of clubs at this moment. It will either be a PSL or NFD club,” said Nieuwenhuys.
In one of his memorable games in the MDC this past season, Jacobus scored two goals as the Cape side beat Kaizer Chiefs 5-4 in their nine goal thriller earlier this year.
“He was the joint top goal scorer in the MDC. We are looking at placing him at a club where he will get a proper chance to play. He never really got a proper chance at Ajax,” concluded Nieuwenhuys.
