Farewell Stam on 25 November

Jaap Stam bids the Ajax fans farewell on Sunday 25 November. The former captain will be honoured by the club and the supporters' clubs prior to the match Ajax - Vitesse.

Stam announced his immediate retirement as an active player last week. The strong defender played one and a half years for Ajax. With the club he captured the Johan Cruijff Shield twice and once the Dutch FA Cup. ,,We are proud that Jaap has played here", technical director Martin van Geel said during the press conference in which Stam's retirement was announced. ,,We are sad to see him go. Jaap is not only a fantastic football player, but also a fantastic person."
