Cape Town - Contrary to what has been reported, Ghanaian striker Kofi Nti Boakye claims he turned down a poor contract offer from Ajax Cape Town, rejecting the club's claims that he did not fail to impress during his trial.

The currently club-less forward was released by the Urban Warriors after a two-week trial with the club.

He was among a group of five players on trial with the Cape Town side, none of whom stayed on beyond the audition period.

"None of them were good enough and we've sent all five of them back," Ajax Cape Town coach Roger de Sa had told Goal.

"I've got my own opinion on the foreigners. I think we get carried away and when a guy comes forward with a foreign passport we believe that he is a good player."

However, Boakye has hit back at reports he was not good enough by revealing the club was interested in signing him, but was not prepared to offer the wage he wanted.

"I have not failed trias as reported on the internet and other media sources, I just did not agree with the terms of Ajax," Boakye told African Football.

"How can they say I am not good when I scored five goals in a training match. The second day, I scored two goals, so how can they say I am not good. I just did not like the deal."

The forward has struggled to find a club since leaving Ghanaian giants Asante Kotoko in 2013.

He was forced to end his contract with Ahlu Tripoli of Libya due to the political instability in the region at the time and joined Egyptian side Misr El Makasa.

However, he was forced to cancel that contract early too, under mysterious circumstances.
