Ajax a quality side – Redknapp


Portsmouth are currently in South Africa on their pre-season tour and arrived in the country on Monday to train at Ikamva.

Jermaine Defoe and Pedro Mendes scored for Pompey, while substitute Dipsy Selolwane netted for Ajax.

“I thought Ajax were excellent,” Redknapp says on Portsmouth official website. “They played good passing football, moved well and were strong and quick.

“They are a very, very good team, very impressive. They were bright all over and got some great crosses in.”

Redknapp also revealed that he was bowled over by Cape Town and is hoping to return to the country next year.

“I’d like to come to South Africa for the next pre-season, like Manchester United did this year,and play two or three games. It would be a great place to come and stay.

“I’ve been so impressed with Cape Town and everything about the place. I don’t see any reason from what I have seen why South Africa shouldn’t be a great venue for the World Cup in two years’ time.”
