Westerveld 'set for Ajax axe'



Veteran Dutch goalkeeper Sander Westerveld could be in for the chop after another error in Ajax Cape Town’s 3-0 loss to Kaizer Chiefs on Tuesday.

Westerveld was at fault for the second goal as Chiefs romped home in Polokwane and Ajax coach Jan Pruijn has admitted to having doubts over his No 1.

Asked whether Westervels would be in goals for the Absa Premiership clash against Maritzburg United at the Cape Town Stadium on Friday night, Pruijn was unsure.

“I have two days now to think about it,” he said. “If you had asked me last week my answer would have been very clear, that he would play.

“But the second goal last night should not have been conceded, he should have dealt with it, and that is a worry.”

The former Liverpool and Everton keeper is in his second season with Ajax, but performances have been mixed.

Outstanding pieces of goalkeeping have been mixed in with sloppy errors that have cost goals. The problem for Pruijn is that the same could be said for his alternative, Sean Roberts.

Westerveld also said recently that he would not be extending his stay at Ajax past this season if the club continued to battle with relegation.
