Feyenoord didnt come for me, eventually I went to Ajax.

Danilho Doekhi looks back on his departure at Ajax in conversation with RTV Rijnmond. There was no breakthrough in Amsterdam, so he chose Vitesse in 2018.

Doekhi is a Rotterdammer and played in the youth of Excelsior. Rijnmond asks him why he didn‘t go to Feyenoord. โ€œWell, I don’t know. It turned out like this. I played with Excelsior in the youth. Eventually, Ajax came and I went there. Feyenoord didn‘t come, so it was never an option. Now I play with Vitesse and Jong Oranje and try to develop myself and do my best.โ€
The step from Excelsior to Ajax was a great, says Doekhi. โ€œIn terms of facilities, professionalism and level, this is a nice step up. With Jong Ajax we became champion in the Jupiler League. I felt like I was ready for the Eredivisie, but that didn’
t happen at Ajax. So I had to look further. Then Vitesse came. A nice club, a subtopper. That‘s where I’m in the base right now. This is now my third season, I‘m developing and that’s good for a young player.โ€
