Paulse unsure of Ajax future

Premiership

The 33-year-old hit fine form early in the season, helping the Cape club lift the MTN8 trophy in September while leading the line with aplomb in Prince Nxumalo’s absence through illness.

A fractured forearm resulted in a six-week lay-off for the towering forward, who has netted seven goals in 17 appearances across all competitions this season.

Paulse was only handed a one-year deal at the start of the campaign, and with his current contract expiring at the end of the season, he admits he is not too sure what the future holds.

“My contract is done now in June, but we’ll obviously sit down with the club soon and see what’s the best way forward for both of us,” he tells KickOff.com. “I still feel good and feel I can still play an important part in this club.

“But you never know in football.”

Ajax currently sit ninth in the Absa Premiership standings, with Paulse insisting his focus is on trying to help the club secure a top-eight finish, rather than worrying about next season.

“We’ll see, but for now I haven’t given much thought about the future – all I’m thinking about now is helping the team get back into the top eight and see how well we can end this season,” he says.

Ajax face third-placed Platinum Stars in their next PSL encounter next week.
