Selection for match against Celtic

Selection for match against Celtic

The selection for the European home game against Celtic includes a few changes compared to the last match against FC Twente. John Heitinga and Yaya Sanogo are suffering from slight injuries and are not completely fit for playing. Riechedly Bazoer is currently sitting out a European suspension. Mitchell Dijks, who has recovered from his injury, returns to the selection, as expected. Thulani Serero is also among the eighteen players.

Serero joins the match group for the first time this season. The South African midfielder suffered an ankle injury in the pre-season, during one of Ajax’s friendly matches in Austria.
