Ajax Cape Town and former head coach Craig Rosslee have parted ways.“We have reached an amicable agreement with Craig Rosslee,” said a statement released at Ikamva.
Rosslee’s departure follows the unconfirmed news earlier in the day that former Kaizer Chiefs mentor Muhsin Ertugral has been appointed to lead the Urban Warriors next season.
More unconfirmed news that has reached the KickOff desk is that former Charlton Athletic striker Shaun Bartlett, who was with Ertugral at Naturena before moving to Bloemfontein Celtic last season, could be appointed as the Turkish mentor’s assistant.
But Hans Vonk’s name has also been linked with the assistant coach position.
Speaking about Rosslee’s departure, Comitis said that that he had acquitted himself in a professional manner in debut season as a coach delivered good results.
“He has performed well and was able to win a major trophy in his two-year tenure," he stated. "We have over the past two seasons twice turned the halfway mark at the top of the table, but unfortunately were unable to sustain our early season success, and twice faltered in the second stanza.
“The mandate and policy of the club has always been to compete for the league and finish within the top six positions.
“We are pleased that we have been able to develop an up and coming coach through our youth ranks as per our policy of youth development. We have produced a coach that has the ability to compete at the highest level.
“However, in line with the new vision of our club going forward and World Cup 2010, Ajax CT requires a more experienced coach that will steer this club in the future.”
