‘Do not understand that Dolberg did not make it, would have liked to see him at Ajax for years’


Ajax scout John Steen Olsen does not understand that Kasper Dolberg has not succeeded in Amsterdam. The 77-year-old Dane is lyrical about the qualities of his compatriot, who made the switch to OGC Nice last year.

“I still call Kasper every now and then,” Olsen says to The Telegraph. “A very good boy. I am really sorry that he left Ajax. I also do not understand why a player with so much quality did not make it and would have liked to see him with us for years. I followed Kasper for two years with Silkeborg and couldn’t understand why I was one of the few scouts who was enthusiastic about him because he is really fantastic. ”

Olsen is also still in contact with Christian Eriksen, currently active at Internazionale. “That is not only a great football player, but also someone who has always stood with both feet on the ground. I did tell him that he should come back to Ajax. He replied that he would like to do that, but if he’s a little older. He’s only 28 years old. But we’ll see if he does. “
