The 18-year-old defender was given time off after returning from the African Cup of Nations with a knee injury.

Coetzee only played in two of South Africa’s three games and the decision was taken to give him extended time off after he arrived back in the country.

Ajax Cape Town coach Roger de Sa admitted that he would not be rushing Coetzee back into the first team if his knee was still a problem.

"He only played two games [at the AFCON] and he's only 18, so he should be pretty fresh," De Sa said.

"He's had a break, he's had a good rest but he's travelled a lot.

“They went via [Ethiopia on their way home] - that's not in our control. We'll assess how good he is and how fit he is, and then make that call."
