The 20-year-old comes with a wealth of experience that betrays his age with three years on the international scene as a Bafana player. Coetzee broke a 15-year-old record that was held by Aaron Mokoena for the youngest player to ever represent Bafana when he started in Pointe-Noire against Congo-Brazzaville in the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers at 17 years and 361 days.
Coetzee has two Cosafa Cup titles he won with the national Under-17 team and the senior national team. Add an appearance at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro last year and you have a player who is at home in the international scene. Those traits make him a perfect fit at the home of the reigning CAF Champions League and CAF Super Cup winners.
While Coetzee heads north from the Mother City, Mario Booysen will go the opposite direction to join Ajax Cape Town on a permanent move.
