Ajax Amsterdam’s 6-1 defeat to Napoli in the Champions League on Tuesday has continued to generate reactions.
The Alfred Schreuder’s side fell to a shocking 6-1 defeat at the Amterdam Arena to the Serie A leaders.
The defeat has generated considerable criticism in the Netherlands, and Dutch legend Marco van Basten attributed the defeat to recruitment policy of the club in the last window.
In a chat with Ziggo Sport, reported by FCUpdate, the former Ajax talisman said, aside Calvin Bassey and Steve Bergwijn, other summer signings aren’t contributing enough.
“Bergwijn and Bassey play, but the rest is not set up at all. Then you wonder what exactly your purchase policy is. The money has to be on the field, right.
“I don’t know if there is anything amiss between the technical guys, but if you spend a hundred million euros and out of the nine players who have been bought, two are playing… Then you may be looking to the future, but I don’t think it is smart.”
Ajax manager Alfred Schreuder is coming under pressure after the manner of the loss.
Ajax are winless in the last four games in all competitions, and the Dutch Champions are currently third on the Champions League table.
