"We have agreed terms with Roger and he has accepted the position of Head Coach at Ajax Cape Town until 2016.

He supports youth development, which is fundamental to Ajax Cape Town future plans and has during his time at Wits introduced many youth players who have succeeded internationally and in the PSL.

"We have a young squad and Roger is a players’ coach having played the game at professional level with Moroka Swallows, Mamelodi Sundowns and Bidvest Wits. His experience as a player gives him a distinct advantage as a coach.

"We welcome Roger to Ikamva and will give him all the support he needs, continued Efstathiou.

Da Sa was born into a football family in Maputo, Mozambique, his father (a goalkeeper) played for Sporting Lisbon between 1956 and 1960.
