The victory of Ajax, corona with the Feyenoord goalkeeper, the death of Simon Kistemaker and the death anniversary of Diego Maradona. These are the topics in the AD Voetbalpodcast. Today presenter Etienne Verhoeff will discuss it with Sjoerd Mossou.
Ajax beat Besiktas 1-2 in Turkey. With a number of other faces in the base. Mossou: ,,It was not the case that the boys who now got a chance have distinguished themselves in an overwhelming way. Daramy and Neres weren’t too positive. But it’s an afterthought if you win the Champions League five times in a row.”
With striker Sébastien Haller again in a leading role. The Frenchman has already scored nine goals in the Champions League this season. ,,It is really amazing those nine goals for Haller. Just as much as Robert Lewandoski. Haller did live up to the high transfer fee that Ajax paid for him. On the other hand, it is of course a bit of a coincidence. He’s a good player, but the fact that he makes nine instead of four is also a coincidence.”
Of course, the podcast also talks about Andre Onana playing along in this duel. That evokes mixed feelings. ,,A trainer acts differently than a director of a club.”
They also talk about two deceased icons. Simon Kistemaker passed away this week. ,,He was incredibly popular in the Achterhoek. He was straight forward. No uniformity. And he let De Graafschap play a kind of fighting football. That was also very direct. That suited De Graafschap and the people from the Achterhoek very much.”
The other icon discussed is Maradona. Exactly one year ago today, the star football player in Argentina passed away. “The chaos and tragedy that haunted him all his life continued after his death. Now there is a doctor cum writer who has written a book about his medical bulletins. Now comes the story of Maradona being buried without a heart. But from the moment he died it is chaos. His death has taken on a kind of Michael Jackson-esque proportions.”
