Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town Chief Executive Officer Ari Efstathiou has
revealed the club’s target for the remainder of the 2016/17 campaign.
The Urban Warriors finished 2016 with two consecutive Absa
Premiership victories over Bloemfontein Celtic and Chippa United.
Efstathiou has praised Ajax head coach Stanley Menzo, who
has been in charge of eight league matches - winning five, losing two and
"Menzo came in and has done well. He is a tough, no-nonsense
coach and works well with our young squad," said Efstathiou on the club's website.
The Ajax CEO went on to state that the team is targeting a
top eight finish in the Absa Premiership and a good run in the 2017 Nedbank
"We moved up to ninth (with 18 points) at the end of 2016.
And now we are targeting at least a top eight finish and a good run in the
Nedbank Cup," he said.
"Considering we only got two points from our first seven
games this is a big turn-around and we have confidence going into the second
round of the league next month."
Ajax will take on second-placed Bidvest Wits at the Bidvest
Stadium in Johannesburg on Tuesday, February 7 as the Absa Premiership resumes.
