PIEN­AAR GIVES HIS BEST WISHES TO AJAX CAPE TOWN

Weekend Witness - - Weekend -

JO­HAN­NES­BURG — Steven Pien­aar has of­fered his best wishes to Ajax Cape Town as his for­mer club go in search of Premier Soc­cer League (PSL) glory this af­ter­noon.

The Ur­ban War­riors need to beat Mar­itzburg United at the Cape Town Sta­dium to be crowned Absa Pre­mier­ship cham­pi­ons — a feat that would bring the tro­phy to the Cape for the first time in a decade.

Pien­aar was on Ajax Cape Town’s books from 1999 to 2001 be­fore go­ing on to play for Ajax Am­s­ter­dam, Borus­sia Dort­mund, Ever­ton and now Tot­ten­ham Hot­spur — be­com­ing one of Europe’s most highly-rated mid­field­ers.

The 29-year-old still has af­fec­tion for the club where he grew up and has sent a per­sonal mes­sage of sup­port ahead of their crunch clash this week­end. — Foot­ball365.com
