Emanuelson enjoys’ cunning ‘ex-teammate: ‘Must behave Ajax for it’

FC Utrecht-midfielder Urby Emanuelson is going to watch Atalanta Bergamo-Ajax Tuesday evening with above average interest. The 34-year-old left-leg played for Ajax for six years, but was loaned to Atalanta by AS Roma during the spring of 2015. Emanuelson expects a tactical game’ between his two ex-clubs, he tells FOX Sports: La Dea made furore in recent years with a hyperattacking system with three defenders. โ€œThat‘s why I’m quite curious how that will be filled in: 3-4-3 against 4-3-3, that is not easy for both parties. Not for Ajax if Atalanta has the ball, not for Atalanta if Ajax has the ball. It could be quite a chess game.โ€
When Emanuelson played for Atalanta, the club still fought against degradation: the born Amsterdammer noticed that the club wanted to move forward. โ€œYou noticed in the people who worked there that there is a certain structure, a certain idea behind it. With fairly young, unknown players.โ€ Captain Alejandro ‘Papu’ Gรณmez for example played with Emanuelson. โ€œNice to see how he stands. A really good, cunning player, which Ajax has to watch out for.โ€
