“Thought he would go to Spanish or English top”


Wamberto is convinced that Antony will make it all the way at Ajax. The former Ajax player talks late with The Telegraph know to be particularly impressed by his compatriot, who arrived in Amsterdam last week. “It’s so technical, in fact, that the ball seems to be stuck to his foot with glue.”

“He is such a great talent that many people in Brazil assumed he would go to the top of Spain or England,” said Wamberto. “But Antony is a sensible boy. He is now in the largest football showcase in Europe. The clubs in La Liga and the Premier League may pay more, but Ajax is also a top club. One where he can get used to European football in relative lee. ‘

According to Wamberto, the attacker must radiate like to play in the shirt of Ajax. “If you don’t work for the club with all your heart, you never become a fixture and the fans never embrace you. Of course Antony can sometimes dance and eat out in Amsterdam, but the concentration has to be one hundred percent. ‘

David Neres

After David Neres arrived in Amsterdam in 2017, Wamberto was asked by Edwin van der Sar to help him acclimatize. ‘Within two months he was a real Ajax player. Brazilians can easily adapt technically and tactically at Ajax, because the attacking system is perfect for them. ‘ Wamberto did not receive a similar request for Antony yet. “But I am open to that, because Ajax is in my heart forever.”
