Jong Ajax 'borrowed' three players

The second day is even more warm in Hong Kong, the temperature was already 32 degree in the morning. So the first training of Jong Ajax in Hong Kong began half an hour earlier as planned.

The players did not adapt the weather in Hong Kong yet, but coach Gery Vink told them before training: ,,Attitude is everything. It is warm and maybe still jetlag for you, but you are all professional football players, you have to handle this well."

Since there are only 11 players who came to Hong Kong for the tournament, Jong Ajax "borrowed" 3 players from Hong Kong Football Club in practicing 7v7 training. ,,It is my honour to train together with the players from Ajax, ,,The player from HKFC James told, ,,We are in the same group with Ajax in the tournament, I am looking forward to play against them on Saturday. Ajax is a great club, I respect them so much." During the training, James also got some idea about this Jong Ajax, ,,Now I know some players, Florian (Jozefzoon) and Roly (Bonevacia)'s performance are very impressive."

Gery Vink extended the training from 1 hour to 1.5 hours. After the training, the players got relaxed in the swimming pool of HKFC. The players are free in the afternoon, they are planning to go shopping in Causeway Bay, the "shopping paradise" of Hong Kong. And in the evening they are invited to Sports Man Dinner which is organized by HKFC.
