The award was presented to Resnch by Abdelhak Nouri’s family, as well as the head of the youth academy, Saïd Ouaali. The 17-year-old Ajacied had a fantastic 2019/2020 season, in which he established himself as a key part of the Ajax U18 team.

Rensch, born in Lelystad, made the move to Ajax’s youth academy at the age of thirteen via his amateur club, VV Unicum. In the years that followed, he developed into a strong and intelligent defender. Rensch has not yet made his official first team debut but was a part of many of the team’s preseason friendlies. He scored a fantastic goal in the exhibition match against Red Bull Salzburg. He has played eight matches for Jong Ajax so far, scoring two goals.
