Ten Hag sees Sickbay emptying: three in training, ‘good steps’ Mazraoui

Ajax had to finish the Europa League race against AS Roma and the away match against RKC Waalwijk with a battered selection, but the infirmary is slowly emptying. Erik ten Hag is counting on the return of a number of players.
Devyne Rensch ran into a suspension on Thursday and got injured in Waalwijk on Sunday, but that lack seems to be compensated. โ€œI expect Perr Schuurs backโ€, says Ten Hag in conversation with ESPN. โ€œThat could certainly play too. And Timber as a right-back? For example. But there are other options too: Sean Klaiber, who can fill it out as well.โ€
Maarten Stekelenburg may also be under the bar on Thursday. โ€œHe has yesterday (Saturday, red.), he is going to train tomorrow and the day after tomorrow. And if all goes well, we hope he will be available on Thursday. Brobbey? Same story. But for today it was not enough, not one hundred percent. As a result, we decided to keep him out of the competition selection.โ€
The long-awaited return of Noussair Mazraoui is also in sight, although the competition in Rome will come too early. The right back struggles with impaired vision and had to wear protective glasses during training. โ€œHe‘s made good moves this week. Thursday he won’t be there anyway, but maybe towards Sunday (the cup finals against Vitesse on Sunday 18 April, red.) will. And otherwise towards the next Thursdayโ€, Ten Hag is quoted by Football International.
