Mzwakali 'shocked' by return


The 20-year-old missed Ajax’s first six encounters of the season due to a groin problem but he is slowly regaining full fitness.


Speaking on the back of an impressive display against Kaizer Chiefs at the weekend, Mzwakali said: “For me, first of all I haven’t been getting game-time, so when the coach told me I was going to start against Aces (Mpumalanga Black Aces) in the Telkom Knockout I was shocked.

“I didn’t think I would start so soon but that is part of the game.

“I am happy with how I have done since then but I can still feel that fitness wise, I am not there yet and so I still struggle with certain things during the game.

“But all I need to do is to keep pushing and keep working hard than I will come right.”

Mzwakali will be hoping to make his third Absa Premiership appearance tonight when Ajax takes on Platinum Stars at Cape Town Stadium.
