The tough-tackling player will be hoping to use his experience to help the Urban Warriors return to the top flight league
Mahamutsa, who won seven major trophies with Pirates, trained with Black Leopards earlier this season, but he could not impress and earn himself a deal with the Limpopo side.
The 38-year-old player has finally found a new home after sigining a short-term deal with NFD log leaders Ajax.
“Ajax Cape town have roped in some experience to see out the final nine games of the 2019/20 NFD season.”
“Veteran centre-back Rooi Mahamutsa has joined the Urban Warriors for the remainder of the season as the club sets its sights on a first league title,” a club statement read.
Mahamutsa is looking forward to playing for the Urban Warriors, who are looking to secure promotion back to the PSL.
“The world works in a strange way; I’ve always admired Ajax as a club and as a brand for many years,” Mahamutsa said.
“At my age you wouldn’t think that I would have the honour of working with the best academy in Africa but here I am.
“To the Ajax faithful, I am looking forward to wearing your treasured red and white kit and I will fight for this title as if I came through your academy.”
The accomplished defender also helped Free State Stars clinch the 2018 Nedbank Cup – playing every minute of their run to the title.
He could make his debut for Ajax when they take on Jomo Cosmos in a league match on Sunday.
