John Comitis’ relocation of Black Aces was setting up a mouthwatering battle against his former club Ajax Cape Town.
He has been talking up his game for a long time since the bitter boardroom and family battles with the Efstathious.
It’s a really sad story behind the scenes. But on the pitch, it could make for the best football derby outside of Soweto in South Africa.
For a long time he has been saying that he is coming for Ajax, even with his FC Cape Town.
But his plans took a heavy knock with Muhsin Ertugral joining up with Orlando Pirates this week.
It won’t be the same now. Ertugral was a massive weapon in his arsenal.
Playing the Ajax way, Muhsin was the best coach he could have had at the helm. Now it doesn’t look so good.
Who will he get? The man Muhsin replaced? Eric Tinkler? Working under Roger de Sa may give Tinkler an edge and he hasn’t done the worst job with Bucs.
It’s going to be an interesting saga from now until pre-season.
