The Cape side were hammered 5-1 by newcomers University of Pretoria at Cape Town Stadium on Saturday.

After the match angry Urban Warriors fans were heard calling for the Dutch coach to be given the boot.

Ajax CEO George Comitis says: "We'll sit down as management and decide. We're not happy with the results, we're not happy with where we are and we are not going to accept it.

"We're not going to hit panic stations - it's six games into the season - but it's our responsibility to sort this out quickly."

Comitis adds that he understands the fans' reaction, after high-flying Tuks scored four goals in the final 16 minutes to stun the hosts.

"The fans paid money to come and watch us get hammered like that at home. If the bosses were all emotionally upset you can imagine how upset the fans were.

"It's a pity they went so berserk but nobody likes to be beaten in that way," he adds.
