With two goals, Steven Bergwijn was also important for Ajax against SC Cambuur (4-0). The Amsterdammer has already scored six goals after five league matches, but does not feel that he is actually too good for the Eredivisie.
Steven Bergwijn himself remains modest about the amount of goals he is scoring. “I’m not really concerned with the top scorers title. I just have to keep going,” said the attacker after the game. Of course Bergwijn was disappointed when he was substituted after sixty minutes, but he remains realistic. “There is another game on Wednesday, so I understand,” he says with a smile.
Trainer Alfred Schreuder is happy that the transfer period is over. On the last day, he almost saw strongman Edson Álvarez leave for Chelsea. “I think it’s wonderful Edson Álvarez has picked it up. Of course he was disappointed when there was interest in him and he was not allowed to leave,” says Schreuder. “He did not train for a day, after consultation with me. And the next day he came to me. He still wants to give everything for Ajax. We saw that again against Cambuur. For him every match is a final. that’s nice to see.”
Schreuder was dissatisfied with his team’s play in the second half. “I thought we should play at a higher tempo,” said the trainer. Next Wednesday there is another important match in the Champions League and Schreuder is also aware of that. “But in the end won and did not sustain any injuries in the run-up to Rangers.”
Next Wednesday, Bergwijn can also show it against Rangers in the Champions League. That match starts at 6.45 pm in the Johan Cruijff Arena.
