Club pink Van Rhijn temporarily captured by old famous Heitinga

Ricardo van Rhijn is back with Ajax for a while. Thirty-year-old Leidenaar sits without a club after his relegation with FC Emmen and is temporarily training with Jong Ajax.
Van Rhijn made 163 official performances on behalf of Ajax between 2011 and 2016 and then released for Club Brugge, AZ, sc Heerenveen and Emmen. After becoming a transfer free, he came back in contact with John Heitinga, former team mate in the 2015/2016 season and today trainer of Jong Ajax. โ€œAnd from a number of matches from the Dutch team in which we played together. That made it more accessible for me to approach him,โ€ he explains talking to the Ajax channels.
The defender is now temporarily back to the club where he spent much of his life. โ€œI was almost able to ride the route with my eyes closed,โ€ he laughs. โ€œIt‘s great to be able to keep my condition here for the time being, with John’s team.โ€
Ultimately Van Rhijn hopes to find a new club, whether or not across the border. โ€œI just turned thirty years (on June 13, ed.), I‘m fit and I certainly hope to last a few more years. I don’t rule out the Netherlands either, but there is certainly a preference for abroad.โ€
