Ajax Podcast International: #2 Alex Méndez

Ajax Podcast International: #2 Alex Méndez

For this 2nd episode we sit down with rising star Alex Méndez. Coming from the rough neighbourhood of South Central Los Angeles, Alex admits football saved his life.

We talk about his journey from local LA Galaxy, via Germany (Freiburg) to the Ajax B Squad (Jong Ajax). Why does he think Ajax is the right club for him and what does he know about the club's philosophy and history?

We also welcome the first 'Far Away Fan': Ian Stewart is from Scotland and has been following the club for many years. Do you also want to join our little network? Send us an email on and become our next Far Away Fan!
