Ajax Cape Town coach Muhsin Ertugral has backed Zimbabwean striker Tendai Ndoro to hit the ground running at the Mother City side.

“He is a brilliant player. He has an eye for goal. It didn’t take long to bring him back. He wanted to come back. He is going to be vital for us and once he gets his rhythm he will score goals for us,” Ertugral told IOL.

The whereabouts of fellow striker Prince Nxumalo are still unclear as he has yet to report for training following their resumption.

The Turk is keen to hear the KZN-born out and give him the opportunity to feature for the club again despite interest from a few Gauteng clubs in his services.

“Prince has been missing. We don’t know where he is. I want to sit down with him and discuss the way forward. I want to hear his side of the story," he said.

“Sometimes it is a problem to hear one side of the story. I want to work with Prince, he is a good striker,” Ertugral concluded.

Nxumalo has reportedly been seen training with Mamelodi Sundowns, who are looking at him to replace Leonardo Castro.

The Colombian striker has joined Kaizer Chiefs, and with another forward in Khama Billiat set to leave, Downs are looking to beef up their attack in earnest with the addition of Nxumalo.
