Stekelenburg took the decision to pack his trolley in consultation with the medical staff. The foot injury is not serious, but too annoying to take action in the coming days. Because he cannot train and play in De Lutte and Oldenzaal after all, the decision was made to drive to Amsterdam.
It is a relief for Stekelenburg that the damage seems to be not too bad. Last season, the goalkeeper, who has now played 311 matches for Ajax, was sidelined for almost the entire year with serious hip and groin complaints. During the championship game against SC Heerenveen, he was under the bar.
