Schreuder on ‘luxury problem’ Ajax: ‘Players told that we sometimes switch earlier’

Alfred Schreuder is happy with the reaction Jay Gorter showed to Ajax training this week. The 22-year-old goalkeeper played an unfortunate leading role in the game with PSV for the Johan Cruijff Scale (5-3) and looked struck afterwards.
The Ajax trainer late in the middle or Gorter gets another chance in the base on Saturday, in the duel with Fortuna Sittard. Gorter just showed himself well at the training, that‘s important, says Schreuder to Ajax TV. Everyone saw what happened, but when you look at the goals, not all defenders went free either.
You just have to discuss this kind of thing internally, Schreuder continues about Gorter. This makes him a big boy, more resilient. You have to be able to handle this. He just has to keep fighting hard. The Amsterdammers also welcomed Maarten Stekelenburg back to training, but playing minutes come too early for the routine. Remko Pasveer can be used.
Change more oftenFurthermore, Ajax has a fit selection. Only Edson Álvarez and Calvin Bassey, who have been suspended, are missing. That’
s why it‘s fighting for a spot, especially in the front. We have a lot of options up front. I also told the group that sometimes we will switch a little earlier. You feel guys want to show themselves. It is a luxury issue. It is always difficult to disappoint players, but it is the job of a trainer to deal with that well and communicate openly with the players about it.
LuccaWith the arrival of Lorenzo Lucca, the options are only increasing. He is a very young and interesting player, hence the buying option. It’
s big and strong. You can take him in the last twenty minutes, but he is also supposed to play football. It‘s not someone we’re only going to bring at the last minute, says Schreuder.
