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.
