Ajax feud affecting signings

Johannesburg - Ajax Cape Town CEO George Comitis admits the family feud unraveling at the club is beginning to negatively affect their ambitions ahead of the new campaign.

Comitis has been involved in a bitter scrap with brother John, and their brothers-in-law Ari, Alex and Nick Efstathiou, over control of the Urban Warriors.

The feud, though, could begin to affect the team's transfer dealings, with the re-signing of Matthew Booth looking more and more unlikely as the Ajax board appear unable to reach any agreement.

Another player waiting in the wings for a contract in Cape Town is Mabhuti Khenyeza, the SuperSport United striker having made his intention to join the Ikamva outfit clear some time ago.

"We cannot wait for the arbitration to take place because the team is really struggling," Comitis told The New Age.

"Booth has been training with the team for the past two months but because we cannot agree, as a board of directors, to sign him, we might end up losing an experienced campaigner that did well for us last season.

"Khenyeza was supposed to have signed for us, but again, our differences stalled the move."
