Huntelaar about Ajax and Schalke: ‘As if you have to choose between two children’

Klaas-Jan Huntelaar made his mark against FC Twente with two goals, but the question is whether he will finish the season with Ajax. A return to Schalke 04 beckons.

โ€œ Schalke has reported and I have to look now how or what. Its something to think about. I played with Ajax for six and a half years, with Schalke seven years. Theyre two beautiful clubs. As if you have to choose between two children.โ€

Huntelaar is working on his last season as a pro anyway, as he had already announced. โ€œI think that choice has been good. I know I can still be of value, I have no doubt about that. Now I have to make a choice.โ€


Trainer Erik ten Hag enjoyed Huntelaar and hopes fervently that the 37-year-old striker will remain. โ€œIve said it many times. Hes an example for this whole generation thats coming right now. How he experiences football… At some point it shoots in his calf and then he wants to make another goal. Wonderful to see.โ€

โ€œ I would like to keep Klaas-Jan there. Hes so important to us. On the field, in the locker room. Hes a great guy.โ€
