Habas Keen On Ajax Post

Former Valencia head coach, Antonio Lopez Habas, has been confirmed as a candidate for the vacant position at Ajax Cape Town.

The Siya crew reported in today’s issue of Soccer-Laduma that the 56-year-old could well have made it onto the club’s list of successors to Muhsin Ertugral, something that has now been confirmed by his representative in South Africa, Paul Mitchell.

Ertugral handed in his resignation at Ajax earlier this month due to ‘personal reasons’ with his assistant, Ian Taylor, taking over as the interim head coach.

However, Ajax are known to be on the lookout for a new long-term replacement, with former Wits head coach, Habas, ex-Mamelodi Sundowns mentor, Johan Neeskens, and Ajax Amsterdam legend, Patrick Kluivert, all being linked.

Mitchell, the managing director of Siyavuma Sports Group, said, “Yes, Antonio would be interested in the job at Ajax, and maybe even some other jobs in Africa, he likes it here and has a good track record. Antonio knows the league, he’s been keeping tabs on it since he left Wits, and would like to work with a club like Ajax that promotes youth.

“In his current role at Atletico Madrid he’s working with kids from eight-years-old all the way up to their reserves, and he knows the importance of youth.”

The Siya crew will continue to monitor the situation at Ikamva as they plan for a future without Ertugral.
