Mateo Cassierra scored this season already 14 times in the Jupiler League on behalf of Jong Ajax, but the Colombian striker so without Kasper Dolberg and Huntelaar to settle with a development this year and wanting.
Ten Hag has a logical explanation. “Mateo is doing very well, with Young and has a decent number of goals made, but all things considered, think of the kopkracht ADO, I have for Siem de Jong is chosen. That has nothing with Cassierra to make, but with The Young.”
Ten Hag takes the experience of the former captain is also an important metric, especially because in addition to Huntelaar also Lasse Schöne is missing. “He is three times champion and players to the hand. Siem is also a little bit irritated because he in recent times not much has played and he should be. Now he gets the chance to show it.”
