” For the main time he won’t be in Amsterdam due to visa issues, so he will spend more time with Ajax franchise in South Africa, Ajax Capetown. They will monitor his progress during his time there.
” During his stay there he will travel to Amsterdam and train with the B team. We are all happy for him. He truly deserve this chance”.
