Lots of naughty boys at Ajax, says Menzo

Cape Town - New Ajax Cape Town head coach Stanley Menzo hopes to use the international break to impart his own rules upon the squad.

Menzo took over from Roger De Sa two weeks ago but has only managed to pick up a single point in his two games in charge, leaving the Urban Warriors at the foot of the league table.

The former Netherlands international has therefore targeted the two-week break from domestic action to instill his methods on the team, feeling that the young squad needs to be set parameters and to understand the importance of discipline.

"I'm very happy that we have two weeks," the 53-year-old told the club's official website. "You have to try and bring the players to your way of thinking, and then from there on you start to work on what you do on the field.

"I have different rules, that's something they have to adapt to quickly. From the rules, to the discipline and the kind of rules we have and the way of training.

"There are a lot of youngsters, a lot of naughty boys. As long as they are disciplined and do the things they have to do, they are allowed to be naughty."

Ajax are yet to win a match in the Absa Premiership this season and will be looking to turn their form around and move off the foot of the table when they next face Maritzburg United on November 19 at Cape Town Stadium.
