After a true spectacle, it turned out that Ajax was no match for PSV. The people from Brabant returned home with the Johan Cruijff Scale (3-5). Goalkeeper Jay Gorter made several mistakes when conceding goals, but Alfred Schreuder saw that differently.

    Ajax’s trainer thought his team was excellent in the first 35 minutes. As a result, Ajax also managed to score 1-0 via Steven Bergwijn, but control disappeared after Guus Til’s equalizer. In the end, the teasing spirit of the team from Amsterdam would score three times. “We have to improve the defense in the sixteen, I thought that was worrying.”

    Another schlemiel at Ajax was Calvin Bassey. The 22-year-old central defender made his debut, but was allowed to take a shower early after a red card. At first it seemed to stay at yellow, but VAR reversed Dennis Higler’s verdict. “When you look back, you understand that they eventually gave red.”

    Asset Steven Bergwijn made his debut and scored the opening goal. A nice boost for the attacker, especially against his old club. He cheered exuberantly, but he thought that was more than logical.
