His agent, Mike Makaab has confirmed that Coetzee is a wanted man and also revealed that he will soon hold talks with Ajax about the player’s future.

“There is interest in Sweden and Denmark. Also, a club in Belgium is keen on him as are two other clubs locally,” Makaab told Independent Media.

“I feel this is the right time for Rivaldo to go overseas. He is 20 (years-old) and close to 30 Bafana caps,” he said.

“He has already played at the (Africa) Nations Cup and the Olympics and he is close to a 100 PSL matches. He is ready for Europe and he can grow there.
