According to KickOff, De Sa believes that Coetzee deserves to play on the world stage and reiterates that Ajax Cape Town will not sell the 18-year-old to a PSL club.

"Yes, there is a lot of interest in the player, but our position is simple - Rivaldo is not for sale," De Sa said.

"We have not received any offers for him yet, but it is still too early. I expect one or two clubs to approach us, but we are not interested in entertaining any talk about him joining a local club."

De Sa hopes that the Urban Warriors' parent club, Ajax Amsterdam, will sign the young defender as the former Orlando Pirates coach deems the Dutch club would be perfect to further Coetzee's development.

"I am sure that if he gets a lot of playing time during the African Cup of Nations, he will be spotted by scouts from some of the big teams in Europe.”
