Former Head of Youth Takes Over at Ajax


Ajax Cape Town have appointed Stanley Menzo as their new head Coach with immediate effect.


The former Dutch international replaces Roger De Sa who “stepped” down yesterday after failing to win a game this season. Menzo was, until now, Ajax head of youth after his appointment in April 2016.

Ajax CEO Ari Efstathiou is confident Menzo will bring Ajax back to winning ways.

“Stanley has played more than 300 games in top European clubs, 249 of them for Ajax Amsterdam. He has represented Holland on international level. Ari said.

“He managed and assisted in top tier European clubs and also assisted Marco van Basten at the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany.

We are confident that Stanley will enhance the Ajax philosophy and playing system at the club and together with Mich D’Avray as his assistant will bring Ajax Cape Town back to winning ways.”

Stanley Menzo said he is excited to take up the position as head coach, although the team is not in a good position currently.

“We will work together as a club to improve, starting from today. What’s important now is getting the players confident for the remainder of the season and bring back the Ajax winning feeling.” Menzo said.

Menzo’s first match with be against SuperSport United on Saturday night at the Cape Town Stadium.
