Dutch star expected back for Ajax



Dutch import Koen van de Laak is expected to be back for Ajax Cape Town at the weekend when they meet Black Leopards in the Premier Soccer League.

Van de Laak has missed three successive matches after undergoing minor knee surgery last month.

His recovery was expected to be a lot quicker but he has missed matches against SuperSport United, Mamelodi Sundowns and the midweek trip to Free State Stars.

Ajax’s caretaker coach Jan Pruijn said he had not trained at full capacity at the start of the week and that was why he did not go on the trip to Phuthaditjhaba but would be available for the weekend.

Ajax host Leopards on Sunday at the Cape Town Stadium, seeking to move away from the bottom half of the league.

But while he has been training with the side this week, it has been decided not to risk him in the game, officials added.

Van de Laak is a former Dutch under-21 international who signed for Ajax in June. He was previously on the books of FC Groningen.
