Ajax Unveil Jaakkola & Krjauklis

Ajax Cape Town officially unveiled Anssi Jaakkola and Ritus Krjauklis at a press conference held by the club earlier today.

Jaakkola joined Ajax on a free transfer from Scottish Premier League side Kilmarnock, after his contract with the club had run out.

The Finnish shot stopper has 11 U21 national team caps under his belt and one full cap for the senior national side.

The club has confirmed that Jaakkola will wear jersey number 32 in the 2013/14 Absa Premiership season, however the 26-year-old is still awaiting his work permit, before he can feature in an official match for the club.

Krjauklis re-joined his former mentor, Muhsin Ertugral, after the two spent part of the 2012/13 Absa Premiership season together at Golden Arrows.

Krjauklis asked to be released soon after Ertugral left the club, as the Latvian was unhappy with the treatment he had received.

The 27-year-old defender has represented his country 18 times at senior level and made 17 appearances for Golden Arrows in 2012.

The club confirmed that Krjauklis will be wearing the number four jersey for the 2013/14 PSL campaign, however the Latvian international also awaits word on his work permit.
