Ajax extends  Noussair Mazraoui’s contract

Ajax and Noussair Mazraoui have reached an agreement for the extension of his contract which had been effective until June 30, 2021.  The new contract is valid until June 30, 2022.

Mazraoui was born on November 14, 1997, in Leiderdorp.  The defender has been playing in Ajax’s youth academy since 2006.  On February 4, 2018,  he made his debut in the first team during the Ajax – NAC Breda (3-1) game.  He has played in 44 games to date for Ajax 1, and scored 4 goals.

'Longer stay at Ajax is best'

Director of football affairs Marc Overmars is pleased with Mazraoui’s contract extension.  “Noussair is only 21 and can play in several positions.  We’ve had good discussions about his future with his agent Mustapha Nakhli.  Naturally he could go abroad, but it’s great that they both feel that a longer stay at Ajax would be best for ‘Nous’”.
