Ajax Cape Town coach Stanley Menzo is excited by the signing of Sameehg Doutie.

Doutie returned to Ikamva this past weekend following spells at Orlando Pirates, SuperSport United, Bidvest Wits and Atlético de Kolkata in India.

“I think he is a good player, a typical Ajax player, Ajax winger – he knows the system, he knows the club,” Menzo told the club’s website.

“He has a lot of quality. I think it is a very good signing.

“Also again, it is some recognition for the fans, he is a real Ajax player, and he was here in the academy, so it is up to him now to showcase those qualities.

“I think with Doutie, he is more a ‘fine’ attacking player; great in playing between the lines, giving through balls, through passes. He has a good cross, good at set-pieces. He can read the game and that is important, especially up front.”

Doutie came on as a second-half substitute for Ajax in the 2-0 win over Cape Town All Stars at Parow Park on Saturday.
