Ajax sympathises with Santos
Ajax coach Maarten Stekelenburg says Cape Town needs Santos to stay in the PSL.
CAPE TOWN - Ajax Cape Town coach Maarten Stekelenburg on Monday said the city needs Santos to stay in the Premiership Soccer League (PSL).
The People's Team could be relegated from top flight football with one game left this season.
Ajax face Santos' relegation rivals Black Leopards this weekend.
A win for the Urban Warriors could help Santos in their relegation battle.
Stekelenburg promised to try and help Santos out, but said his team will be focusing on themselves.
"I think it's good that we have two teams from Cape Town in the League, so we will definitely do our best to win that game, not only for Santos but for ourselves."
Stekelenburg said, "Initially, our aim was to be in the top four but we didn't perform well. We are now working towards making it into the top eight."
Meanwhile, Santos drew 2-2 with AmaZulu on Saturday.
The Cape side will take on rock-bottom Jomo Cosmos on May 19 at the Athlone Stadium.
