Ajax on report: two unsatisfactory marks, but many low marks after blow in Classic

Ajax has received a blow from Feyenoord in the battle for the national title. The team from Amsterdam lost 3-2 in the Johan Cruijff Arena. VoetbalPrimeur hands out report marks to the Ajax players.

Gerónimo Rulli – 5.5: Rulli conceded three goals. The Argentinian stepped in with the second and third Feyenoord goal, but those turned out to be errors of judgment.

Jorge Sánchez – 6: The replacement for the injured Devyne Rensch defended fiercely on the ball, with which he nipped Rotterdam’s danger in the bud a few times. At the same time it also turned out that he does not have many weapons at his disposal.

Jurriën Timber – 6: Timber started with a knife between his teeth and had a few good interventions in the opening phase. Shortly after the break, however, he was seen at Szymanski’s 2-2. He could have anticipated that better. He also tried to keep the ship called the Ajax defense afloat.

Calvin Bassey – 4.5: The strong mandecker got off to a dramatic start. After four minutes he completely lost Santiago Gimenez. Even after half an hour he choked on the Mexican. In the build-up it also went from bad to worse for Bassey, who seemed to have lost all his confidence.

Owen Wijndal – 5: Wijndal was also impure in the passing a few times. Besides, he could have done a better job of helping Bassey. It doesn’t help that he looks a little lax. In the run-up to the 2-2, he was not back in position in time after an earlier action.

Edson Álvarez – 7: The Mexican left his mark on Ajax from the first whistle. He took the lead in the battle, stood out with a rush through the ashes of the field and headed in from a corner kick. His excellent performance is only snowed under by the defeat.

Kenneth Taylor – 5.5: As the game progressed, Taylor faded into the background. He also failed to offer Bassey a solution in the build-up.

Steven Berghuis – 7.5: Berghuis has not been in the best shape in recent weeks, but against Feyenoord he was on point with an assist and a front assist. As usual, the playmaker threw beautiful balls against his old club.

Mohammed Kudus – 5.5: The fact that direct opponent Hartman was quickly replaced says something about the danger of Kudus. However, the Ghanaian can also play just a little faster at times and in the second half he was a lot less involved. In the final phase he had the 3-2 on the shoe, but missed.

Dusan Tadic – 6: Tadic initially had some difficulty getting a foothold against the Feyenoord team, but he neatly took the 2-1. The Serb was important again, but he was not often reached.

Steven Bergwijn – 5.5: Bergwijn was still threatening and dangerous in the first half, but it all just didn’t go well. Although the left winger did provide an assist. He is on his way back, but it will have to be many times better. After the break, Feyenoord was stronger and Bergwijn was completely invisible.

Francisco Conceição – x: Played too short for a rating.

Davy Klaassen – x: Played too short for an assessment.

Brian Brobbey – x: Played too short for a rating.

Lorenzo Lucca – x: Played too short for a rating.

John Heitinga – 6: After a difficult opening phase, Ajax dominated for a long time before the break. In the second half, however, the home team was loose sand. The rear guard, among other things, will give the trainer headaches. Defensively it was not convincing and the build-up was weak. Due to Heitinga’s substitutions, half the team had to change positions and no result was forthcoming.
