Ajax Cape Town coach, Muhsin Ertugral, has expressed satisfaction about his lanky striker, Eleazar Rodgers.
The former Santos man joined the Urban Warriors this year after a stint at Mamelodi Sundowns following Santos’ relegation two seasons ago.
Rodgers struggled to find his feet in the Urban warriors side until recently when he scored his first goal against Supersport United in their last game as they won 2-1.
“Eleazar is our box player and I’m happy to see him making his way to the top, I’m impressed that every week he’s getting better. He understands the running and how to escape marking by defenders. Obviously he’s not the quickest but he’s adapting to our style of play, he’s now involved in pressing zones and build ups process,” revealed the former Kaizer Chiefs mentor.
“He’s a tall striker and can take players on despite that, he’s also reactive and at this point in time, he gives us a number of objectives. We need some difference in that department,” said Ertugral.
Ajax Cape Town will face Maritzburg United at Cape Town stadium tonight and a win will the see Urban Warriors into the top eight on the table.
