Ajax does not seem to have to take Yusuf Yazici into account in the Europa League matches against Lille OSC. The attacking midfielder of the leader of France is injured at his foot.
After the Turk scored a goal against Bordeaux (0-3 win), he was injured at his foot and had to leave the field. Trainer Christophe Galtier has now announced that he does not count on Yazici for the diptych against Ajax. This is what Turkish media, including Fanatik, are drawing from his mouth.

The lack of the attacking midfielder is a windfall for the team of trainer Erik ten Hag. Yazici is one of Lille’s better players and scored seven times in the French Ligue 1 this season. In the Europa League, the Turk was confident: in six matches he scored as many goals as well.
In the summer of 2019, Lille Yazici took over sixteen million euros from Trabzonspor. In the following season he was already in action against Ajax. In the two Champions League matches the two teams, both won by Ajax, he competed for a total of 109 minutes.
