“We look always in the mirror: what had we better do?” early on Overmars in the television program Inside Ajax at Ziggo Sport.

Ajax saw this summer, among others, Davy Klaassen, Davinson Sanchez, Kenny Tete and Bertrand Traoré leave.

Klaassen made the switch to Everton, Sanchez moved to Tottenham Hotspur. Tete and Traoré and Traoré come this season for Olympique Lyon.


“I can take the criticism understand, but the penny fell into this preparation very often wrong”, was referring to the old international at the miss of European football.

Ajax was last month in the preliminary round of the Champions League eliminated by OGC Nice, and had then in the last qualifying round of the Europa League are several recognise in Rosenborg BK.

“We had the misfortune that Daley Sinkgraven has been a while from lag”, he continued Overmars. “The position left at the rear was therefore thinly.”

The Young

Ajax took this summer with Siem de Jong and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar back. Also fortified the club with Maximilian Wöber, Luis Orejuela and Dennis Johnsen.

“I blame myself, not really what”, said Overmars. “I’m happy with Wöber. That was a candidate that we actually from the beginning wanted to have. I am also pleased with Dennis Johnsen. Very much talent, but also a boy that is all immediately deployable.”

The Young was partly due to the elimination of Abdelhak Nouri attracted. “After the departure of Judy, we wanted to actually not a replacement, but because of the case with Appie turned out that we have an extra midfielder when needed.”

“We had two good candidates on the eye, but those were in may way. Then you come to be in a different category.”
