In an interesting move, Versleijen has taken over as head of technical affairs – a position that was recently vacated by Jan Pruijn, who has since taken over as head coach.

Pruijn took over as head coach following the departure of Maarten Stekelenburg and Ajax CEO George Comitis reveals to that he will continue as head coach.

"Versleijen has been appointed as the technical manager of the team, that's the position that was vacated by Pruijn," Comitis confirms.

"Versleijen has signed for until the end of the season and Pruijn will continue as coach," he adds.

I love Ajax Cape Town because they believe in a philosophy and they will stick to it no matter what. They develop their own players into decent footballers but they're a selling club. This is why they can't always be contenders to win the league. But their system is well oiled and they'll always remain in the PSL and their goal to be in the top 8 is an expectation that should be met more often than not.
