Bosz sees Sinkgraven as a good alternative to full-Dijks
Ajax coach Peter Bosz is planning to Daley Sinkgraven this season for future use if full. The 21-year-old midfielder played Wednesday night in the bekerduel with Willem II (5-0 win) as fullback.
“Sinkgraven has a lot of qualities in house for the position of full. In addition, we have no substitute for Mitchell Dijks, so he would have to place a lot of minutes,” said Bosz Thursday at the press conference in the run-up to the competitieduel with PEC Zwolle on Saturday in the Arena.
Ajax took Sinkgraven in January 2015 about sc Heerenveen. The player of the Jong Oranje knew in Amsterdam, as yet, no fixed goals to conquer, partly due to the heavy competition on the midfield. Bosz used Sinkgraven already left, and now also as full.
“Daley was never in that position thought. But he took it positively and has the against Willem II did an excellent job. The only question is whether he duelkracht enough.”
The goals for Sinkgraven was not the only change that Bosz Wednesday brought to his team. The coach gave, among others, Davy Klaassen, Nemanja Gudelj, Bertrand Traoré, Davinson Sanchez and Amin Younes rest. In addition, it debuted Abdelhak Nouri, Matthijs de ligt and Frenkie de Jong.
“I knew that questions would come up or I cup seriously, please”, admits Bosz. “But I had a very good feeling with this setup. In advance, I knew: this is going to be a great outcome. After I also told my players said that they managed to make me even harder to make.”
