Ajax trainer Erik ten Hag does not want to participate in an interim departure of Quincy Promes, claims Russian Match TV. The medium has heard that from a source that is close to Ajax.
Spartak Moscow has been talking with Ajax for a long time about a possible return of Promes, which made a furore in the Russian capital in 2014 and 2018. The club leadership of Ajax invested in a asking price of fifteen million euros, told Sport24 journalist Dmitry Egorov this week to Football First.
According to Match TV Ten Hag takes a principled view: he spoke out earlier against Edson Álvarezs winter departure and seems to want to keep Promes as well. The Ajax trainer has already put the emphasis on the busy schedule of Ajax several times and wants to keep his selection together as much as possible.
It seems to be a bitter pill for the fans of Spartak, who still carry Promes on their hands. The Amsterdammer came to 66 hits in 135 official matches and took one national championship and one top scoring title with Spartak. “Promes is not just a player, but a legend,” said Egorov, in conversation with this site.
