Spaan believes that Johnson will play for Ajax 1 in the future. “He is the only one for whom I would raise my hand as a future first team player at Ajax: Jinairo Johnson, rightly the best player of this tournament,” writes the journalist and well-known Ajax fan. Het Parool.

Trainer Michael Lamey of Ajax Under 17 thinks the selection for his pupil is more than justified. “I think he has shown why he deserves the title of best player. He can play at center back, in midfield and even up front. He is just very complete.”
