Cape Town – Ajax Cape Town coach Roger de Sa admits that it will be hard to keep Rivaldo Coetzee at the Ikamva club and confirms his exit looms.

Sport24 reported earlier this week that that Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs are willing to table an offer for the youngster in order for him to be in their ranks.

The three PSL giants are eager to sign the young defender but according to Soccer Laduma, Roger de Sa has confirmed that Coetzee is closing in on joining Ajax Amsterdam instead.

“The decision was made to let him keep playing in the first team here, but now it’s a different story and he’s in the senior national team,” said De Sa.

“I’ve always said that he’s in pencil on my board because I feel like it’s a matter of time before he goes. I think this season will be his last season.”

The former Bidvest Wits coach rules out a longer stay and confirms it will be his last PSL season.

“He won’t be in the PSL for too long. He’ll go up, and the quicker he does that the better he’ll become.”

Meanwhile, Ajax Cape Town will look to return to winning ways in the PSL when they host Platinum Stars at Cape Town Stadium on Wednesday, October 22.

Kick-off is at 19:30.

Is playing abroad a better option for Rivaldo Coetzee or is it too early in his career?
