The Brit sets foot on Dutch ground. The brand-new Ajacied joins the player-manager in the car to rush to the medical check.
Head coach John van 't Schip quickly drops by to see Henderson. The two greet each other happily and talk to each other briefly. CEO Jan van Halst also meets the brand-new Ajacied. After a few tests, the midfielder is good to go.
It’s time to meet the club’s people, look at the stadium and give his first interview as an Ajax player. Henderson takes it all in with a big smile. The Ajacied heads down to the fan shop and is one of the first ones to print his name and new shirt number on a shirt. The Brit will wear number six.
The thirty-year-old takes in the club's rich history in the Ajax Museum. "As a child, I followed the club and saw many big names wear the Ajax shirt: Clarence Seedorf, Frank Rijkaard, Marco van Basten, Johan Cruijff, Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Also, my friend Luis Suarez. Ajax is one of the biggest clubs in the world. It's impressive to see this history."
Our photographer followed him during the day and made a fantastic collection of photos.
