Of course the men look forward to the Classical of next Sunday between Ajax and Feyenoord. Verweij resolutely rejects the idea that the duel will become an apple egg for the people of Amsterdam. “Because Dick is a lawyer trainer. I think hes going to come up with a plan with which Feyenoord can make Ajax very difficult.”
Driessen looks at this – partly because of the inability of the new striker of the Rotterdam Lucas Pratto – quite differently. “You can create a very good organization, but Ajax simply has too many individual qualities for Feyenoord.”
It also zooms in on the situation of the Ajax attack. Verweij tells us that the Marc Overmars may still be a busy transfer period. Especially when Brian Brobbey leaves next to Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, Ajax – after attracting Sebastién haller – will get another attacker. According to Verweij, Huntelaar does well to reject the flirtation of Schalke 04 and stay in Amsterdam. “At Ajax he can say goodbye in a wonderful way.”
The interview Verweij had with former Ajacied Noa Lang (and even though it can be read) will also be discussed. In it, the attacker at Club Brugge tells about his bad relationship with Erik ten Hag.
