Stanley Menzo named Ajax Cape Town coach


Ajax Cape Town have appointed Stanley Menzo as its coach following the resignation of Roger De Sa.

CAPE TOWN – Ajax Cape Town have acted swiftly in appointing a new coach following the resignation of Roger De Sa.

The club’s head of development, former Dutch international goalkeeper Stanley Menzo, was named as the new coach on Friday.



Menzo said he was ready to help the club move away from the relegation zone.

“Well I think in a different way than Rodger thinks. Maybe my approach is different than his approach. So hopefully, no, I’m sure it will help us go up the log. Now and then a team needs another face, another voice and another approach from a coach and that does not mean that his approach was not good or that he wasn’t a good coach but now and then that is the switch,” he said.

Ajax Cape Town chairman Ari Efstathiou said: “When the position of head of youth became available in April we phoned him immediately and he took it up. At the time there was no intention of him taking up the position of head coach as Rodger was doing a great job for us. But the situation has changed and the position became available and it was quite an easy decision.”
