thumbnail Hello,

The 18-year-old Brazilian talent has not yet received his work permit, meaning Ajax Cape Town have to wait before they can unleash the attack-minded player

The Urban Warriors have not been able to start the Brazilian as they are still waiting for his work permit to be approved. They will not have Wanderson in their squad for their next game against Pretoria University on Saturday.

The permit process has been slow, as the transfer was completed three weeks ago.    

The Wanderson deal was an exciting addition to Ajax Cape Town’s strike force. The young talent offers pace and creativity to a struggling side which has only won one game out of five this season.

His fellow players and technical team have labelled the player as an incredible talent, a game breaker who could significantly change Ajax’s fortunes this season.  

However the club has been left frustrated, as the player has had to sit out games for the last three weeks, watching his team struggle to four points out of a potential fifteen.

Following a 4 -1 demolition of a struggling Platinum Stars, the team has only been able to create two goals, while their defence has haemorrhaged 9 goals this season.  

Their 2 – 0 loss against Pirates in their last outing highlighted their lack of form. The team is not only struggling to create goals, but their defensive play is also lacking.

Wanderson would provide an attacking lift to the side, as well as an unknown quantity for other sides to deal with.

Injured defender Thulani Hlatshwayo should be given a recall on Saturday, after recovering from a split gum in the game against Platinum Stars.

Maarten Stekelenburg is targeting their home match against AmaTuks on Saturday as a must-win game.
