Six Ajax players had their pictures taken for Ajax's car sponsor Fiat. The six posed with a brand new Fiat Ulysse next to the Amsterdam Arena.
Jari Litmanen, Wamberto, Andy van der Meyde, Jelle van Damme, Wesley Sneijder and Stefano Seedorf reported in club costume to the shining car. ,,Show you are proud of the car'', the photographer said. Especially Andy van der Meyde, who started the car immediately and wanted to drive off, took the suggestion to heart and kept reminding his teammates of the motto with every picture.
The Ajax players were captured in many different ways. Every time the sun came out from behind the clouds, the photographer and his team directed them toward the car.
A photo shoot consists of posing occasionally and a lot of waiting. Thankfully the players had some diversion. Bystanders came over for a chat, or to ask for an autograph or a picture. Wamberto, Van Damme and Litmanen jumped together on the bike of one of the fans.
After an hour of posing with the Fiat Ulysse the work was done for the six Ajax players. After posing with the entire Fiat team, they rushed home to rest. Ajax have to focus on Sunday's match against De Graafschap.
