After signing German midfielder Heiner Backhaus and defender Clive Brincat, newly-promoted Rabat Ajax secured the services of Montenegrin defender Ivan Carapic, Spanish forward Manuel Moral Fuster and Lithuanian striker Nerijus Astrauskas.
Thirty-year old Carapic played for FK Ribnica Podgorica and FK Buducnost Podgorica in Montenegro before moving to Malta to join Tarxien Rainbows in summer 2008. However after a short spell with the Rainbows, he returned to Montenegro where he played for FK Decic and spent the last three years with OFK Petrovac.
