“Ajax has played a huge role in my career in terms of my development and myself and the club are working out a way of how they are going to help me develop even further.
“I am happy to announce that I spoke to coach Stanley Menzo and apologised to him and we will decide what the future holds.
“I am happy to say that I have returned to training with the MDC side team as of today (Tuesday)‚” he said.
Coetzee had not reported for pre-season training‚ hopeful of either pushing for a move away from the club or to land a better deal having been named Player of the Year and players’ Player of the Year in the 2016-17 season.
The 20-year-old Bafana international had drawn interest from home and abroad‚ but clubs were put off by the reported R13-million price-tag Ajax placed on him.
Menzo was not a happy man and he said last week Coetzee had no respect for his teammates.
