Eleazar Rodgers says that the reasons for the drag in his proposed move to Ajax Cape Town were due to his unwillingness to relocate.
The 28-year-old arrived at Ikamva this morning to begin a new tenure with the Urban Warriors after weeks of uncertainty as he was also part of the deal that saw Khama Billiat move to Mamelodi Sundowns.
Despite finally sealing a loan move to the Cape Outfit, Rodgers was also linked with a move to Bidvest Wits.
“I didn’t mind coming down here to play for Ajax or remaining in Gauteng with Wits.”
“It’s just I had to relocate again after I had settled in well in Gauteng.”
Rodgers last turned out for Santos before eventually leaving for Sundowns, he says he hopes to receive the backing of Ajax’s cross-town rival’s fans, Santos, despite the change in colours.
“Hopefully they will continue to support me, but right now I’m focused on football.
“I’m looking forward finding my feet again. I want to settle in the team well, gel with the players and find my goal scoring form once again.”
