Some years ago they had Luis Suarez, Huntelaar, Stekelenburg, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Vermaelen, Eriksen etc.
Ajax have been rebuilding for years, but once a player improves a little bit, the big boys sign him: Milik being another fine example, one good season now Napoli set to sign him for €35,000,000!
Ajax were unlucky tonight though, played really well, hit the bar, missed a few sitters. One bad moment from Cillessen costly. Can see them turning it around in Greece. Will be tough, but doable.
