Ajax Cape Town are expected to make their decision on Rudiger Gilbert before the end of the week. The former Free State Stars defender is on trial at the Urban Warriors in an attempt to resurrect his fading football career.
The Upington-born player revealed to the Siya crew that training with the side from the Mother City has been going well so far, and that he is waiting for their decision by the end of the week.
“It’s still going alright. They haven’t said anything so far. But I expect their decision by the end of this week,” said Gilbert.
The 26-year-old is earmarked for the Cape side’s right-back position to compete with the likes of Cecil Lolo and Thato Mokeke in the first team.
Gilbert is hoping for the team’s new head coach, Jan Versleijen, to be impressed with his performances at training. The Dutchman has taken over the coaching reins at the club from Jan Pruijn.
