Ajax Amsterdam is losing weight in the Eredivisie. The historic Dutch team has not had good results in recent days and this has upset their fans. Former soccer player Wesley Sneijder attacked the performance of Edson Álvarez and Jorge Sánchez after Ajax’s last game against Feyenoord.
Sneijder indicated that Jorge Sánchez along with Calvin Bassey are among the worst defenders in the Eredivisie. Without a doubt, this is a very strong statement in a context in which the club has only been able to win two games out of its last nine.
“Those are really the two worst defenders in the top 8 in the Eredivisie. And then the midfield still has to receive the ball. They just didn’t want the ball. Why? Because they are out of shape. They went to play hide and seek. Although in the case of Steven Berghuis it was also understandable. He, too, had been away for two weeks due to illness. And then such a loaded match. Everything went wrong”, sentenced the former soccer player for Veronica Offside, compiled by fox Sports.
Edson Álvarez taken down from the pedestal
The “Machín” is one of the most praised players within Ajax, but the bad present of the team has led him to the line of criticism. Wesley Sneijder also dedicated a few words to the former Águilas del América player.
“Actually, something we expected. Haven’t seen a decent build. Then Edson Álvarez got the ball, but he was giving some kind of salsa lesson. All moves taken before I started playing”, he added.
