Stekelenburg: "I have to have surgery on my hip to deal with my hip problems. This will be followed by months of rehabilitation. I’ve gone from one extreme to the other. When I returned to Ajax in 2020, I could not have imagined that I would win the double here as the first choice goalkeeper, nor would I have expected to have my sights set on the European Championship with the national team."

"I then had to call end to my international career to focus on Ajax. And now my season is suddenly over because of this injury, I am terribly disappointed."
