Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town CEO Ari Efstathiou insists he is unconcerned about the imminent arrival of a rival club in the Mother City.

Mpumalanga Black Aces are set to move to Cape Town after former Ajax boss John Comitis bought the club from the Morfou brothers.

Aces will undergo a rebranding and will have a new name by the time the 2016/17 season commences.

"Nothing has been confirmed just yet, but it has no effect on us...it makes no difference to us," Efstathiou told KickOff.

"I don't know of their plans. I don't think it will make any difference on Ajax's performances. The more clubs the better [for Cape Town]."

There is no love lost between the two football bosses following the messy impasse that led to Comitis leaving Ajax last year.
