Ajax: Akpabio Is Contracted To Us

On-loan Chippa United striker, George Akpabio, is set to return to his parent club, Ajax Cape Town, after his loan deal comes to an end when the current campaign closes.

As previously reported by the crew this morning, the player is set to go back to the Ikamva-based club.

Ajax PRO, Thabiso 'Shooz' Mekuto, confirmed that the striker is still contracted to the club, and that it’s a must for him to go back at the end of his loan deal from the newly promoted Chippa United.

“We’re not keen to have him as it’s been speculated in some newspapers, but any player that’s been loaned out must go back to his club. George is no exception, he’s contracted to Ajax for another season, so he must come back to us. He’ll come back because Roger must see him and decide. The coach must look at his team and decide on George,” said Mekuto.

Although the player’s agent, Mohammed Lawal, was recently quoted saying that Akpabio was not treated fairly at Ikamva and was keen to stay on at the Chilli Boys, Mekuto said whatever happened in the past is gone.

“Treatment under Roger? No, the player hasn’t met Roger and he was loaned out when the coach was Muhsin Ertugral. There’s no Muhsin at Ajax, and he hasn’t met Roger." 

"His style wasn’t suitable in terms of how Ertugral wanted to play. Now we can’t talk about that. As an agent, he must understand how business is done because football is a business. Whatever the agent’s problem is, that’s his problem but his job is to represent the player and both him and the player have never met Roger. If the interest of the player is to meet the new Ajax coach, that should be a priority, " he said.

The player’s boss is Roger, whatever happened in the past doesn’t involve Roger. The boy is a responsibility of Ajax, and we are the ones to make decisions, not anyone else unless the player and Ajax agrees to part ways. He’s not the only player loaned out, we’ve got many players and it’s not only him. When they come back and Roger says I don’t like these players, we have to make an agreement with the player,” concluded Shooz.
