Former Ajax Cape Town stalwart Dominic Isaacs foresees a bright future for the club's new striker Sedwyn George and believes he is the perfect replacement for the recently retired Nathan Paulse.
George joined the Urban Warriors after top scoring in the National First Division with 20 goals for Royal Eagles last term.
Isaacs, who worked with the 25-year-old at Eagles, says Ajax has made a very good buy in acquiring the former South Africa futsal international.
“I see foresee a very bright future for Sedwyn at Ajax,” Isaacs tells KickOff.com. “He’s an out-and-out goal scorer you know. He anticipates the play very well and is always in the right place at the right time, like all good strikers should be. He can also play with his back towards the goal, he’s got speed and he is also very good in one-on-one situations. So he gives you options on attack.”
The ex-Kaizer Chiefs defender says he formed a bond with George at Eagles.
“Look, I don’t really want to speak about what one does for your fellow humans and players, but I took him under my wing while we were at Eagles. He confided in me sometimes and would ask for advice whenever he needed. He’s good boy and I’m confident that he will be able to hold his own at Ajax. His 20 goals in the NFD is testimony of what he can do.
“He’s played in the Motsepe League, the NFD and now the PSL and knows what the South African scene is all about. He has to be patient with himself as he has made very good progress in his career thus far. Like I said, I foresee a very bright future for him with Ajax and he is the perfect candidate to replace Nathan [Paulse],” concludes the 35-year-old.
