Klaas-Jan Huntelaar dropped in on Thursday in minute 89 during FC Twente-Ajax and helped the Amsterdammers with two hits to a 1-3 win in Enschede, but is probably working on his last matches for Ajax. Schalke 04, where Huntelaar played between 2010 and 2017, would like to bring back the Achterhoeker.
Huntelaar acknowledged that there is interest from Gelsenkirchen. “Schalke has reported. I talked to Ajax about it. A difficult choice, of course,” says Huntelaar to ESPN. The 37-year-old striker must make a choice between two of his greatest loves. “For Ajax I played 6.5 years, for Schalke 7 years. Theyre both the clubs I love the most.”
Interviewer Hans Kraay junior had learned that Huntelaar had said if I wanted to, you have to give me it to director of player policy Marc Overmars. “Thats right. Then he said, “Then well look”, huntelaar grinned, who, however, still has to cut the knot. “In the end, you also have to try to make a good choice. But you never know that before. You can not weigh everything exactly in advance. Its tricky, for everything speaks. Schalke is in trouble (penultimate in the Bundesliga, red.), a bit more of a sensitive choice in that respect. Ajax is a little more stable, maybe a better ending. But those others may need me a little more.”
Huntelaars contract expires after this season. The striker already hinted that he wants to stop next summer.
