Fanteni writes off season

Cape Town - Terror Fanteni feels the only thing worse than Ajax Cape Town's season has been his own personal showing in the Premiership.

The Urban Warriors headed into the new campaign full of hope following their runners-up finish the previous term, but Maarten Stekelenburg's debut season with the Mother City outfit has been anything but memorable.

A whopping 15 points currently separates Ajax and PSL leaders Orlando Pirates, leaving the coastal club battling to earn a top-eight finish, and ultimately a place in next season's MTN8.

"I think for us we started very well at the beginning of the season but somewhere, somehow at the middle of the season, we didn't do all that well," he told Backpage TXT.

"For me personally, I don't think it was a very good season. I was injured for a while before coming back. But for all of us it has not been a good season because we wanted to finish in the top three but now we find ourselves outside the top eight."

The Capetonians have had to deal with several key injuries and unwanted suspensions during the course of the campaign, and Fanteni believes those factors played a big role in derailing their ambitions.

"I would say suspension and injuries upset us. We don't have a big squad and we have a lot of young players in our squad. They are still learning."

The striker, though, says he is just looking to put this season behind him, and start focusing on the future at the Cape Town Stadium.

"I will try to forget about this season and focus on the new one. I'll prepare hard for the coming campaign and put behind me whatever happened this past season," he said.
