Ajax Amsterdam,Holland (1997-1999)
Ajax Amsterdam,the Home of Total Football!
At Ajax Amsterdam it quickly dawned on me that this was the beginning of the big leagues.It is in all ramifications a top world class club.Organisation,infrastructure,youth development programs.

At Ajax, every day felt like a school day. I was always learning something new, be it tactics, technical or social details.At this club everything was thought out before hand.

Playing alongside players like Michael Laudrup, Shota Arveladze, Edwin Van Der Sar, Jari Litmanen, Benny Mccarthy, Danny Blind, Richard Witschge,Frank De Boer,Tijani Babangida,Ronald De Boer etc was a great honour and learning experience
With all the new experiences and motivation to continue succeeding, I decided to take up a new challenge by signing for Juventus Turin when the offer came in 1999.
