Edwin van der Sar is also disappointed by the fact that no supporters are allowed to be present at round 31 of the Eredivisie. The general director of Ajax finds the decision not to extend last weekend‘s test pilot ‘incomprehensible. ‘
“We find it incomprehensible,” says Van der Sar about the cabinet decision on the Ajax club channels. “Last week Ajax — AZ had almost 7500 supporters in the ArenA, everyone was tested. And it all went to your liking. The enthusiasm was enormous and well felt in the stadium. On Sunday, Emmen comes here to visit. It tasted like more, but it gets much less. In fact, this feels like we’re back to square one.”
“I agree with the words of the KNVB, ECV and KKD, who found that the pilot was a blank and that it cannot be explained to fans”, Van der Sar continues. “We want to end this season nicely and supporters are part of it. Unfortunately, our patience is put to the test again.”
For Ajax, the absence of supporters in the upcoming round means that it must play the championship match in an empty stadium. On Sunday the Amsterdammers have enough to make a point for the 35th national title against FC Emmen.
“I agree with the words of the KNVB, ECV and KKD who found that the pilot was a blank and that it cannot be explained to fans. We want to end this season nicely and there are supporters, unfortunately our patience is put to the test again.”
