Kraay: ‘Pierie without ball unworthy of Ajax’


Hedwiges Maduro and Hans Kraay jr. Are happy with the temporary transition from Kik Pierie to FC Twente. The duo feel that the left-footed defender is currently short, especially in a defensive sense, for Ajax 1.

According to Maduro, the step to FC Twente is therefore at the right time. “I think he’s going to do well there. If he gets the confidence, he is just a good footballer ‘, the former Ajax player explains Football talk. “Ajax might have been a bit too high for him, but he also did well at sc Heerenveen. I am therefore curious how he will develop under Ron Jans. ‘

Kraay agrees with Maduro. According to him, however, Pierie does lack essential properties. ‘You see in a nutshell that he can play football, you saw that with sc Heerenveen. Only, he cannot head and cannot tackle. Those are two useful things for a defender, but he has not managed to improve that at Ajax. He is worthy of the Ajax on the ball, but without the ball he is unworthy of Ajax. ‘
