Heitinga regularly stood out during a trainer’s course: ‘Even if he had to cheat’

John Heitinga made a great impression on his examiners Dennis Demmers and Gert Aandewiel during his trainer course. Ajax’s coach is preparing for his first Classic, but the gentlemen do not think he will be easily upset.

In conversation with Algemeen Dagblad, Aandewiel and Demmers cite an example of a number of corona cases during the course. “John didn’t get confused at all, had the solution ready immediately and also showed that he had the required competences. During the course he not only informed the players, but he also analyzed behavioral changes.”

Go Ahead Eagles midfielder Enric Llansana also experienced Heitinga for a while at Ajax and he discovered another quality that can take the trainer to great heights. “John hated losing. You saw that when he participated in parties. He didn’t lose, even if he had to cheat. He could also explode after a defeat. I’m not surprised that he’s doing so well now .”

Demmers doesn’t dare use the word ‘exemplary student’ at Heitinga, but everyone on the course saw how passionate he was. “John sniffed out as much information as possible. Because of his drive and eagerness to learn, I am very curious how far he will go.”
