Although the Ajax squad normally trains at the de Toekomst training ground, the Ajax players were instead working up a sweat at the Johan Cruyff ArenA this Friday. With a thorough warm-up, a rondo and various play drills, the players were getting ready for their first home game of the calendar year. FC Twente, currently number four in the Eredivisie, will visit Amsterdam on Saturday, kick-off at 9 p.m.
Our photographer was there, and took some great shots.
Ajax went through to the next round of the KNVB Cup Wednesday evening, following a visit to FC Den Bosch. A penalty from Dusan Tadic and a direct shot from Kenneth Taylor brought home a 2-0 victory.
