Rijkhoff (16) on rumored Ajax departure: “A lot of hate messages soon”

Julian Rijkhoff suddenly became the center of attention at the beginning of 2021: the sixteen-year-old striker from the Ajax youth opted for a transfer to Borussia Dortmund. That transfer caused a lot of dust to the surprise of Rijkhoff himself.
His departure coincided with that of fellow striker Brian Brobbey and was widely measured: Marco van Basten and Sjaak Swart, among others, showed their light on it, as did many social media users. Yes, there was a lot of noise, Rijkhoff informs ELF Football. That was how unpacked, especially on social media, surprised me. I got a lot of hate messages soon. That was hard at times, but you learn how to deal with it by not reading everything.
Rijkhoff shrugs his shoulders. I let it go past me. Just like what was written in the media. The people who are close to me and myself know why I chose Borussia Dortmund.
