Van Hooijdonk has a tip for Ajax: ‘Let Blind leave transfer-free’

Pierre van Hooijdonk believes that Ajax should let Daley Blind go on a free transfer. The former player of Feyenoord, among others, says that at NOS Studio Football.

Van Hooijdonk expects Ajax’s club management to intervene after the umpteenth disappointment of the season. Last Saturday evening there was a draw against FC Emmen (3-3). ‘There will be a period when the leadership will have to indicate whether they want to continue with Schreuder,’ says van Hooijdonk.

There is a chance that the hierarchy at Ajax will be shaken up. If that happens, there will be no room for Blind, according to Van Hooijdonk. At Studio Voetbal, Blind is even accused of ‘refusal to work and sabotage’. Let him leave on a free transfer. The negative spirits must be removed from your selection. You can’t have that as a trainer.’

Steven Bergwijn

Not only Blind is criticized during Studio Voetbal. Steven Bergwijn also has to pay the analysts of the NOS. In an interview with ESPN, Bergwijn said he “don’t have the faintest idea what we were doing” and “we don’t seem to know what to do.” Van Hooijdonk: ‘Then you are not helping your trainer.’ Rafael van der Vaart also has his opinion about it. ‘Then you are not a top player. You don’t play for the trainer, but for the honour, for Ajax.”
