Several Brazilians have worn the Ajax jersey in the past. Recent examples are Wamberto, Maxwell, Zé Eduardo and Kerlon. Not so long ago, another prominent Brazilian was spotted with an Ajax shirt. President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva accepted the shirt with a wide smile.
‘Lulu’, as he’s also known, has been President of Brazil since 2003. An Ajax connection, who recently met the president in Brazil, gave him the shirt. The football-crazy nation will host the World Cup in four years.
