It is official! I finalized my transfer to Paris Saint-Germain. After playing for Ajax over 13 years, making my professional debut on the 11th of March 2007 against FC Twente, it is time to take the next step in my career and it is a step I am extremely proud of! I am looking forward to a new city, a bigger competition, meeting my new teammates and starting of with a new period in my life.
Over the last couple of years I learned a great deal at Ajax and experienced some amazing times with this club; winning titles and playing Champions League. I’ve been playing here since I was seven and Ajax defined me as a player and as a person. As a team we have accomplished many great things. My absolute highlight while playing for Ajax was the unexpected turn in the 2010/2011 season, where we ended up as the winner of the national league title.
Of course I am going to miss my colleagues and friends at Ajax but I am looking forward to something new and I am ready to take on a new challenge. It was an absolute honour to be part of such a great team and club.
A special thanks goes out to all the fans that supported me over the years. Hopefully you guys will continue following me and of course I will share my updates and thoughts right here. And again thank you for everything!
