Booth Relishing Ajax Cape Town Visit

Matthew Booth enjoyed a successful campaign with Ajax Cape Town last season, even though the team struggled and only narrowly avoided relegation.

His good form attracted the eye of Gavin Hunt, and the experienced defender was soon snapped up in a deal to join Wits.

He has already featured for The Students in the new season, and appears to be an important component in Hunt’s plans for the 2013/14 campaign.

With Wits facing Ajax in an Absa Premiership encounter this evening, in Johannesburg, the Siya crew caught up with Booth on facing his old team.

He said, “Yes, they’ve brought in a number of new faces. I guess only time will tell if that’s going to work out or not. Certainly I believe Muhsin Ertugral is the right coach for Ajax."

"I believe they’re struggling in midfield and are looking to get players there. Up front and at the back they look very promising.”

Booth added, “Look, they’re always going to be a difficult prospect and it would be nice to come up against my former teammates in this particular game.”
