The well-travelled Pruijn will help develop the coaches at Ajax Cape Town, as well as assist in identifying new talent for the Ikamva-based side.
Ajax CEO John Comitis told the club’s website: “The minute we realised the sponsorship of MTN I did not hesitate to secure the services of Jan Pruijn. He has a vast reservoir of knowledge about the latest developments of football and his appointment at Ikamva will once again raise the bar within our structures.
“There is nothing like having first world input and experience at your doorstep. Our association with Ajax Amsterdam keeps us abreast of the developments of the world game but having Jan at Ikamva will ensure that we continually develop our coaches in accordance with the latest technical and tactical global developments.
“By educating our coaches we indirectly educate our players and how better to prepare them for football at a higher level. Jan will also work with our scouts to ensure that players who come into Ikamva is of a high quality and fit the profile of an Ajax player.”
