Matthijs de ligt fights with Sam Larsson.
That says ex-international Ernie Brandts, Sunday afternoon as rapporteur for the championship Footballer of the Year in the top match between Ajax and Feyenoord. “They are so good. When you have them both, you sit the next five years baked”, is Brandt’s enthusiastic about the young players from the Amsterdam club, which both have a place in the national team of the week.

“Of course, was the defence of Ajax is not optimally tested because Feyenoord early in the game with ten man came to be, but for The Lies makes that not really matter. He always wins all of his duels. When you see how easily he hit the ball conquers, that is very clever. That boy’s only going to get better,” says Brandt, who is the captain of the Amsterdammers rewarded with a 7.
Just as enthusiastic is the rapporteur on The Young, who in the Johan Cruijff ArenA was named Man of the Match. With an 8 he was also of Brandts, the highest figure. “The Young is very strong on the ball. He is actually playing point guard, who a lot of attacks start. I would describe him as a tempobepaler. With his what about spot’s and splitting passes, he gives speed to the game. For the soccer, it is a pleasure to be watching him.”
However, it is surprised the Brandts not that The Is and The Young both the Ajax shirt still wear. “The wise guys. This is evident if you talk to them after the match with the media hear talk, then they say only meaningful things. I think it is a good choice of them has been to last summer not to leave. Prove to them weekly how talented they are and do with Ajax, experience in the Champions League. When you then move abroad, you come up yet with a other status.”
