Ajax Cape Town’s newest recruit, Yannick Zakri, can’t wait to make his debut for the club following his move from Absa Premiership rivals Mamelodi Sundowns this month.
The 26-year-old is raring to go and could well play his first game for the Urban Warriors this Friday when we welcome Free State Stars to Cape Town Stadium. Kick-off is at 20h00 CAT.
“This is a good move for me and I am very happy to be here” said Zakri at Ikamva on Wednesday.
“We have a lot of talented players here and I trust my teammates that we can get out of this situation. I’ve watched Ajax Cape Town play in the past and I know they play nice football. They miss some experience right now and I want to add that to the team.
Zakri continued: “Now I have a new family and I just want to do my best. I trust the coach and I want to help the team. We just have to take it game by game, and everything will come right.”
Head coach Muhsin Ertugral has been a long-time admirer of the Ivory Coast international and is confident that Zakri will make a positive impact in attack, alongside the likes of Tendai Ndoro, Tashreeq Morris and Fagrie Lakay.
“He is a player I’ve admired for a very long time and we are now very strong going forward‚” Ertugral added.
