Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town defender Abbubaker Mobara revealed he has no desire to join a rival South African club, and would only consider a move overseas.

The Urban Warriors' youth prospects traditionally garner attention at the end of the season after being given a chance to prove themselves at the Cape side, and this term has been no different.

Mobara is one of several talented youngsters to have impressed again for Ajax this season, but is adamant he has no intention of leaving the Cape for a Premiership rival.

"I am only interested in going to Europe. I am not looking at Joburg teams. Europe is a fantastic place to learn and start your career," he told The Sowetan.

"While I am in South Africa, I will play for Ajax. There are so many things to achieve for this team. We believe we can become stronger, especially if we keep this squad.

"This season the coach really changed us. He is more than a coach. He is a friend and he does not have favourites. He is fair and I respect him for that."

The defender admitted he was heart-broken after the club's devastating loss on penalties to Mamelodi Sundowns in the Nedbank Cup final.

"My mother cried after I missed the penalty to win the game. For me to hear that my mother cried hurts me," he added.

"Since I started playing football my mother has never missed a game. We really wanted to win the cup. But it was a good experience, even though we lost."
