Ajax Cape Town have acquired the services of experienced players in Lebohang Mokoena and Mark Mayambela, who will be seeking a revival of fortunes at their new club.
Yesterday, at the press conference held by Ajax, the two former Orlando Pirates players were introduced and welcomed by the club as they seek to revive their careers. Both players have a tremendous amount of talent and have, over the years, experienced challenges that have dampened their careers.
We all remember the amazing performances these two individuals showcased when they were on the field. "Cheeseboy" was the apple of the Buccaneers supporters' eye, but his move to Mamelodi Sundowns took its toll on him as limited game time made us forget the fast-paced, dribbling wizard was still playing. It is a shame to see how such talent was taken for granted!
Lanky attacker "Professor" Mayambela was also a favourite among the Pirates supporters, but his off-field antics had a negative effect on his career and resulted him moving from club to club to club.
Now, with both these experienced midfielders searching for a change in their fortunes, they have come to the Mother City, and coach Roger De Sa will be relying on his new imports to help provide guidance for the youngsters at the club, as well as reproduce the sparkling form they are capable of. Only time will tell if these two still have what it takes to outshine their opponents, though…
What do you think of Mayambela and Mokoena's moves to Ajax?
