De Ligt thinks back to time in Amsterdam: 'I miss Ajax a lot'

Matthijs de Ligt still has a warm feeling about his time at Ajax. He broke through in national and international top football and thus he has many fond memories of his time in Amsterdam. ‘I miss Ajax a lot. It’s a great club and they’ve always taken good care of me’, said the mandekker in conversation with Ajax television. Especially the familiar feeling that the club gave him has stayed with him, it turns out. ‘I went through the youth academy there and it was just a great time. I knew everyone and it’s always nice to come back there.’ The defender became captain of Ajax and did so as the youngest footballer ever. In addition, there was never a younger captain active in the Champions League. But what is his best period in Amsterdam? “The last year, when we became champions, made the cut in the half-ending of the Champions League and won the cup. Those were the best moments at Ajax.’ De Ligt is now a defender of Bayern Munich, but he is currently with the Dutch national team in Qatar. The World Cup football starts there next weekend and he is looking forward to experiencing it. ‘The fulfillment of the boys playing such a great tournament and gaining such a great experience. It is a boy’s dream to experience a World Cup.’ De Ligt hopes for the greatest achievements with Orange Louis van Gaal, national coach of the Dutch national team, did not hide his ambitions. Becoming world champion is the goal and nothing less. De Ligt remains somewhat cautious when asked what the Orange will achieve. ‘Who knows, I hope very much. We will see.’ Last weekend, Sportbookies achieved a portion of 91% in correct betting tips. Check out the best World Cup betting tips now! When you play responsibly, you keep it fun.
