The legs are beginning to get heavier on this third day of the training camp in De Lutte. But don’t think that things will get quieter. On the contrary. The supporters along the sidelines were able to see how fast it can go and how quickly the Ajax players can run.
At times, it seemed like an athletics training but with a ball, towards the end of the morning training on the De Lutte sports fields. During one exercise, the players needed to make a long sprint from the back position, after which the ball was to be played and passed carefully within the lines of the box. There, another Ajax player stood, ready to round off. It was a fantastic show. Afterwards, all of the players wanted to see how fast they had run. Moreover, they wanted to ensure that they were not too far off the team average – nobody wants that, of course. Sweaty but pleased, the players walked to their bicycles to head to the ice baths. Five single minutes, or five minutes in a row for a speedy recovery.
The Ajax players will train again at four p.m. at SV De Lutte.
