The emperor expected that, outside of Sanchez, no one more will depart at Ajax

The embattled Ajax-trainer Marcel Emperor do not expect that outside Davinson Sanchez still other players out of his selection will be leaving this month.

“The transfer of Sanchez is not yet official, but it seems that he is leaving. I assume that the rest will remain,” said the Emperor Friday at a press conference in Amsterdam, barely fourteen hours after the painful 0-1 defeat against the Norwegian Rosenborg in the play-offs of Europa League.

Ajax, that Sunday in the Premier league visit of FC Groningen, it would be Thursday evening have reached an agreement with Tottenham Hotspur over the transfer of Sanchez to the value of 45 million euro.

Emperor is not afraid that Ajax is hit by an exodus now, the Colombian defender will almost certainly depart and European shutdown is imminent. The trainer gave out anew that he was counting on reinforcements. “But that I would like to, is nothing new. It remains annoying that the 31st of August until the transferdeadline.”

“We wanted everyone to love each other, but if a big club comes in for someone like Sanchez, has a boy there are also ideas about. And if there are such solid amounts on the table, then you must as a club be listening.”

Ajax pulled this summer so far only a reservespits (Klaas-Jan Huntelaar), two reservekeepers (Benjamin of Leather and Kostas Lamprou), and a young Colombian defender (Luis Orejuela).

Not only the supporters, but also within the cast of actors, there is dissatisfaction with the transferbeleid of this summer. Hakim Ziyech left that Thursday night show for the camera of Ziggo Sport. “It is a pity that they (the Ajax-board, red.) not of the faults of last year have learned,” said the midfielder.

“If someone’s after the match a reaction, then that’s no problem,” responded the Emperor to a question about Ziyech. “We know that there are more players left than joined the conversation. That is not very much, because there are also a number of substitutes with it”, was referring to the trainer on Jairo Riedewald and Kenny Tete.

“But it does mean, however, that group becomes smaller and that doesn’t help the quality of the training. So We are still searching for replacements, but how quickly can you arrange? It is annoying that it might now be a bit slower going, but the way it is.”
