Kenneth Perez is critical of Brian Brobbey, but also sees that the potential is there. At Dit was het Weekend, the Danish analyst examines the 21-year-old striker, who has to be satisfied with a reserve role at Ajax for the time being.
Perez therefore immediately rejects a comparison with predecessor Sébastien Haller. “I don’t think it’s a comparison, those two. Haller is much smarter in putting pressure and moving without the ball. He does more,” says the former Ajax player.
Perez thinks Brobbey is very talented. “He has a nose for the goal, because no matter how you look at it, he is a joint top scorer with eleven goals. He scored those in very few minutes. He did that well. Only what I have seen with him before “At home against Volendam, for example, he had to go out with a cramp. That is not the toughest match in Europe. Erik ten Hag also mentioned it: he does not work enough. That is actually incredible with such a body, with such a godsend ….”
Perez sees that all ingredients are present for Brobbey to grow into an important striker for Ajax. “In today’s football you have to be fast and physically strong. He has all that. You wait for it all to come together, because then this is a good purchase. Then I think he will be worth much more than the seventeen million euros that Ajax has spent on him. That everything comes together is just the hardest thing there is.”
