And he has, of course, what you see at all the boys from the Ajax-youth: he is on the ball just fine. He is strong in possession of the ball, has a good cross pass, a good kick with right and left.”
“What must I do?’
Veerman knew at a given moment, not where he should look. “He comes and sits everywhere in between. Matthijs has the qualities, in which the striker on a given the idea: what must I do against this guy?”
