Ajax bosses continue fighting

Ajax Cape Town bosses have rejected a call to have a mediator following talks of liquidation.

CAPE TOWN - Ajax Cape Town CEO George Comitis on Thursday said mediation should be between the Comitis and Efstahiou brothers, rather than with shareholders.

On Thursday, board members of Cape Town Stars met and decided they would ask shareholders Ajax Amsterdam to mediate after talks of liquidation.

Ari Efstahiou has since said they do not want to liquidate the club.

Comitis said the problem is between the two families.

“The mediation should be between the Comitis and Efstahiou brothers. I was surprised to learn that they are looking for someone to mediate between the two shareholders.”

Comitis said, “I think the only solution at the end of the day is for one family to buy the other family out. I think that’s the only way we’ll find some sanity.”

Meanwhile, the boardroom issues seem to have spilled onto the field as the team has been struggling this season.

The Cape side is at number 13 on the log after just two wins.
