Driessen fileert Ajax after crowded tribute: ‘Up middle finger’

Valentijn Driessen cut the knives after the official title party of Ajax: the players, staff members and supporters celebrated with a large number of supporters. The chief football of De Cceit focuses his arrows on the management of the Amsterdammers.
Driessen recalls how Marc Overmars called last season to stop the competition. ‘He could not believe that there was playing on while so many coronadodes fell, ‘he writes in his column for De Cceit. โ€œWhat a brutality. As if these days there are not deaths every day by regretting Covid-19.โ€
According to Driessen, the Ajax management has raised a ‘big fat middle’ by allowing a title party of such a large size. โ€œTo the coronas victims, medical care, police, catering, zoos, amusement parks, enforcers who have to sway people on the ticket for 95 euros, politics and all people who follow the rules.โ€
During the unofficial title party, after the victory over AZ, the crowd was addressed by general director Edwin van der Sar, who called on the fans to go home. That was not the case this time, notes Driessen. ‘On behalf of Ajax Van der Sar even stated that the club officially does not bear any responsibility for everything that takes place outside the stadium. On behalf of Ajax, he did not even attempt to move the people at the ArenA to go home. In fact, the management actively and fully consciously participated in ignoring all corona measures. ‘
Also trainer Erik ten Hag gets a note of it: he said afterwards that he was disappointed that no fans could be present. ‘Where the hospitals and ICs are so full that regular care is scaled and code black threatens, the trainer of Ajax found it incomprehensible that no fans were allowed into the stadium for the championship competition’, driessen says. ‘In his frustration he found the test event last week when the public was welcome at Ajax-az a sausage without perspective. While he was not aware of the pre-made agreements with the government. ‘
