Firstly, here's how the Cape Town fans, media and Twitter followers reacted to the news this morning.
It wasn't long before Ertugral was linked with the Ajax post.
The #UrbanWarriors would like to thank Mr Menzo for his service to the club, both in his roles as Head Coach and Head of Youth and wish him well on his future endeavours. #WeAreAjaxCT pic.twitter.com/vbLg8VpMyD— Ajax Cape Town (@ajaxcapetown) December 21, 2017
Truth be told Stanley Menzo just never got going at @ajaxcapetown and @Veli_Mbuli and I questioned this on 411 a while back of the last 30 games Ajax have only won 7 and have failed to score in 13 of those.— Andile Ncube (@AndileNcube) December 21, 2017
Menzo: “I think that a coaching change is possibly the best for the club right now as we get to the critical part of the season.”— Joe Crann (@YesWeCrann) December 21, 2017
First casualty of the @officialpsl Xmas break: " @ajaxcapetown and head coach Stanley Menzo have mutually agreed to part company with immediate effect. After a year at the helm, Menzo was unable to find consistency from his team which he has led to 15th position on log" @AFCAjax pic.twitter.com/JwIvGvxICW— Neal Collins (@nealcol) December 21, 2017
Stanley Menzo played under Johan Cruyff, who created Barcelona's style of play but it's beyond me how Ajax couldn't play a passing game under him, you would expect them to play awesome football but they played defensively - not like Ajax. #AbsaPrem— Thapelo Mokhele (@mokhelethapelo) December 21, 2017
