Mazraoui: ‘Have thought about it, but am not Hakim and not Donny’

Noussair Mazraoui emphasizes that he has deliberately decided to choose Bayern Munich. The right back leaves Ajax at the age of 24 and has in the past seen with former fellow players that the step abroad is great. Yet Mazraoui does not fear that his adventure in Germany will fail.
Donny van de Beek and Hakim Ziyech left after a strong season at Ajax for Manchester United and Chelsea respectively. In a farewell interview with Ajax TV Mazraoui is asked if the current situation of the pair has made him think. โ€œYes and no. It was when I looked at which step I was going to take, but I was always convinced that I wanted to make the stepโ€, says the fullback.
โ€œIt has a lot to do with where you‘re going. I did think about whether I wanted to go to England, because guys like Hakim and Donny play there. Apparently, that competition is just a little bit tougher,โ€ he notes. โ€œBut I’m not Hakim and I‘m not Donny. No one can know beforehand if you’re going to make it somewhere.โ€
