Cape Town - Following their disappointing
loss to Kaizer Chiefs on Wednesday, Ajax Cape Town goalkeeper Anssi Jaakkola has
admitted that the Urban Warriors were completely outplayed by the Absa
Premiership run-away log leaders.
Ajax suffered their 7th loss of the season
when they went 1-0 down to the Phefeni Glamour Boys at the FNB Stadium thanks
to Mandla Masango’s first half strike.
“Our performance was very sloppy from the
very first second of the game,” insisted Jaakkola.
“I think we started the game very badly and
we were not connecting.
“We were very sloppy from the first whistle
of the first half until the end.
“The coach (Roger de Sa) even said it at
half-time that we were not playing according to instructions.
“He told us to press harder in the second
half so that we can try to win the game.
“We tried and did a little bit better in
the second half but it wasn’t enough for us to score.
“It was one of those games which we didn’t
do well as a team.”
A defeat for the Mother City team kept them
in the 6th place on the log with only 9 games of the 2014/15 season remaining.
They will be looking to redeem themselves
when they face SuperSport United at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday.
Kick-off is scheduled for 18:00.
