‘Brian Brobbey could compete with Sébastien Haller’ | Football

by archysport

Ajax is mainly looking at an attacker because top scorer Sébastien Haller participates with Ivory Coast in the Africa Cup, which is on the program in Cameroon from January 9 to February 6. Ajax will resume the second half of the season on January 16 with an away match against FC Utrecht. A week later, PSV is the opponent in Eindhoven.

Ten Hag acknowledges that he still has regular contact with Brian Brobbey, who left Ajax for RB Leipzig at the end of last season and gets little playing time there. “If he had stayed, he would have played more recently. That had been gold for his development. He could compete with Sébastien. With his goals, purposefulness, speed and charisma. He knows our club and fits well in our dressing room.”

It looks a lot like Ajax is also keeping a close eye on Steven Bergwijn’s situation. The born Amsterdammer has received little playing time from his new coach Antonio Conte at Tottenham Hotspur in recent weeks. “I may repeat myself, but we want to improve. If there is an option for that, we will investigate it,” Ten Hag responds when Bergwijn’s name is mentioned.

“Whether we are also investigating Bergwijn’s situation? We investigate everything. We are professionals,” says Ten Hag. “I can’t promise anyone a starting spot. But we want to compete in the top 15 or top 20 in Europe. Then it is inherent that we need more than eleven basic players. You have to fight for a place with us. You get paid well. Do you want to take up the challenge? Do you want to get better? Do you want to have fun playing football, because we play in a certain way. If you can excel with us, you can also achieve personal goals.”
