Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town have confirmed that coach Roger De Sa has put pen to paper on a new contract which keeps him tied to the club until 2018.

The 51-year-old has committed his future to the Urban Warriors after enjoying a largely successful two-and-a-half years at the helm of the Premiership outfit.

De Sa steered his side to MTN8 glory this term, while his side secured a top-five finish last season as well as a place in the Nedbank Cup final.

"Roger has been a revelation at Ajax Cape Town," CEO Ari Efstathiou told the club's official website.

"He has embraced the club's philosophy of promoting youth players to the PSL team.

"His personality and commitment in his first stint at Ajax Cape Town has shown great results and the management had no hesitation in extending his contract.

"We are confident in his abilities and are expecting him to ensure that with his guidance Ajax Cape Town will reach new heights."

De Sa started his coaching career at Wits and was at the helm for four years before joining Santos in 2005.

A return to the university club followed two years later, with the former goalkeeper going on to enjoy a five-year stint in his second spell at the club.

The Mozambique-born coach's exploits did not go unnoticed by Soweto giants Orlando Pirates, who announced the appointment of De Sa in September 2012.
