thumbnail Hello,

The Ajax Cape Town coach has lent his support to the club's new management structure following the Comitis brothers' decision to leave the club yesterday

Ajax Cape Town coach Muhsin Ertugral has asked the club's fans to keep supporting the Urban Warriors during its time of transition, following the deal made between the Comitis and Efstathiou family on Tuesday.

George and John Comitis decided to sell their stake in the club to the Efstathious, in order to end the feud which almost derailed Ajax Cape Town's 2012/2013 season.

The families did agree on one aspect of the club last season, which was to bring in former coach Muhsin Ertugral in order to help the relegation-threatened team survive.

Erturgral fulfilled his mandate by securing the club's PSL status, and has asked the fans to lend their support to their team during its changes in ownership structure.

"The team is stable, [so] the supporters mustn't worry as this is an administrative issue. Ajax Cape Town is a very dedicated team and an important club to the City of Cape Town," Ertugral said in a statement.

"Our focus is on ensuring that the team is successful and we ask the supporters to keep supporting their club, the team and the new management structures."

Ari Efstathiou has enthused that the deal is positive for the future of the club and said, "We are confident that this resolution is in the best interest of all stakeholders: The players, the staff, supporters, sponsors and the football ­fraternity at large.

"The structures of the club are strong and will continue to operate successfully. The focus can now be where it needs to be, on the team and ensuring its success in the season."
