Eyong leaving for Europe

Eyong leaving for Europe

Posted: 4 July 2008 Time: 02:52 pm

Ajax Cape Town midfielder Eyong Enoh is leaving tomorrow for trials with Israel side Maccabi Haifa in a deal organised by the player’s business manager Mario Atakiglan and Mike Makaab’s Pro Sports International.

If Enoh does join the club, he will be joining his ex-teammate Thembinkosi Fanteni and Tsepo Masilela.

The Cameroon-born player has been a revelation since moving to Cape Town midway through the 2006/07 season under Muhsin Ertugral. Eyong led Ajax to their first major trophy since 2000, when they beat Mamelodi Sundowns to win the Absa Cup. Last season Ajax came close to winning the League with Enoh playing a sterling role.

“Eyong will be in Israel for two weeks and after that he will go to Turkish side Kayserispor,” confirms Atakiglan. “Lille and Strasbourg in France also want to see him and that will be his next destination after Turkey and after that we will see what happens.”

When the 22-year-old signed for Ajax one of the clauses in his contract was that, after a season and a half, he would leave for Europe if there was any interest.

“This is a great opportunity for me and I will work hard to grab it,” the player says.

“I hope everything will be fine. If the move does happen, I will certainly miss Cape Town because I had a great time with the guys. But my ambition has always been to play in Europe and that will give me a chance to play for my national team.”

Good production Ajax, all your team are moving abroad but as for this clause 'when they beat Mamelodi Sundowns to win the Absa Cup.' this is a little mistake from the editors and is uncalled for. Sundowns 4 Life.
