Ajax Cape Town head coach Stanley Menzo has explained why the Urban Warriors will not be buying reinforcements during the January transfer window.

The Urban Warriors slumped to 15th spot in the Absa Premiership standings after losing 1-0 to Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday night.

However, Menzo insists there is enough quality in the current squad to pull them out of their current slump.

When asked if the club were looking at bolstering their squad, Menzo told SuperSport, "No, there's enough quality, we need players who can help with keeping the ball more in the team. Keep the organisation. I don't think they [Chiefs] played.

"They didn't have big chances. They had one or two. You have to keep your organisation. Keep the discipline and keep defending on the ball, you have to relax and wait for your moment."

Ajax suffered their seventh defeat of the season on Saturday night and Menzo felt his charges did do enough to hurt Chiefs.

"We were defensive maybe in the second half but in the first half not. We were calm. We were okay, we were tight. When we were won the ball there was a lot of space, I thought there were moments where we did well especially in the first half. I thought the first half was 60/40 or 50/50," the Ajax coach said.

"But not a lot to hurt them because there was a lot of space in behind. We had a few of moments of that - winning the ball in midfield and then hitting from behind but it was not enough. In the second half we didn't play."
