The former Manchester City striker was confirmed to be training at Ajax’s headquarters (Ikamva) on Monday morning, but just two days later, he was revealed as the latest swoop by the Chilli Boys.
He is the second player this season that Ajax have seen make the move across to Philippi despite having trained with the Urban Warriors and he admits he wouldn’t have minded sporting the red and white shirt.
“I was with Ajax just to keep myself fit for the two days and no one knew I was here for Chippa,” he revealed on Robert Marawa’s show on Metro FM on Wednesday evening.
“I was just happy training with them. If they had approached me, I would have signed with Ajax, but fortunately I signed with Chippa.
“I wouldn’t have signed at Chippa if I wasn’t happy. I want to do something with Chippa, help them fight relegation,” said Benjani.
