Siboniso Gaxa’s business manager Glyn Binkin is unsure of the defender’s plans this season given his studying commitments.
The 34-year-old Gaxa parted ways with Ajax Cape Town after his short-term contract with the NFD club expired at the end of June.
‘Pa’, as the player is affectionately known, only played three times for the Urban Warriors.
“He is not with the team, no. His contract finished end of June,” Binkin told KickOff.com.
Asked if there are any offers on the table for his client’s services, Binkin replied: “No, not at the moment.
“He is focusing on his studies at the moment as well.
“I don’t know at this stage [if he will be playing football this season]. I’m not sure yet.”
The ex-Bafana Bafana star remains at odds with former team Kaizer Chiefs. He believes he had two years left on his contract with the Naturena-based side when they announced his departure in July 2016. SAFA’s arbitrators were called in after the PSL DRC ruled in favour of Chiefs on the matter
Ertugral: Gaxa’s experience vital for Ajax
Cape Town – Ajax Cape Town coach Muhsin Ertugralsays he has always been a big admirer of Siboniso Gaxaand that he may use the veteran in a variety of positions.
The Urban Warriors recently snapped up the former Bafana Bafana international after he was released by Bidvest Wits. Prior to that, the 33-year-old enjoyed a successful four-year spell with Kaizer Chiefs.
There were initial doubts that Ajax would bring in the player after the signing of Siyanda Zwane from Mamelodi Sundowns, however, the Turk revealed he holds Gaxa in high regard.
He said: “He is a South African international and his experience at the moment is more vital than his physical strength.
“So there are those elements that he can give the team on the road‚ when we are playing with the ball or without the ball. The right decisions that he takes… even without physical fitness.
“He is working hard‚ that [fitness] gap can be closed after the Golden Arrows game [on February 25]‚ then I think he will be completely ready. But also I am not scared to put him in because we need a player like that.
“He can also play some other positions. ’Pa’ is a player that when I was with Chiefs (from 2007 until 2009)‚ I loved how he was he was playing.
“When I was there we couldn’t get him‚ when I left he was on the transfer-list that we had developed at the time and Chiefs got him.”
Ajax next travel to the Orlando Stadium to face Soweto giants Orlando Pirates in a Nedbank Cup round of 32 clash on Saturday.
