Evans back on trial in USA
Former Ajax cape Town skipper Brett Evans is on trial with Major League Soccer (MLS) side Colorado Rapids in the United States.
Evans is looking for a new club after ending his 13-year association with the Urban Warriors at the end of last season.
He is desperate to move to the USA and has already tried out at another MLS franchised, the Portland Timbers.
"I was playing back home in South Africa and looking for a new team as my contract was up," Evans told ColoradoRapids.com. "I'm very happy to be here, and hoping to leave an impression and hopefully I can be wearing the Rapids jersey one day.
"(Ajax) has been my team my entire career, and it's a pity to leave. But I'm looking for something new, a new challenge. Hopefully this is the chance I can get."
Were he to join, Evans would not be the first South African to play in Colorado. Former Bafana striker Shaun Bartlett turned out for the club in 2006 and 2007, scoring nine times in 36 appearances.
Evans played 10 times for South Africa between 2002 and 2008, and was also capped at all junior levels for his country.
He also made over 300 starts for Ajax in a career that saw him win the 2000 Rothmans Cup, 2007 Absa Cup and 2008 Telkom Knockout.
