Van der Vaart praises Man of the Match at Ajax: “Very rightly so”

Rafael van der Vaart has been very impressed by youngster Jorrel Hato in recent weeks. Against FC Utrecht, the only seventeen-year-old promise was again in the center of the back, he did an excellent job and was voted Man of the Match in the stadium.

Van der Vaart: ‘Hato simply makes Ajax much better on the ball’

“Of course he is very young, so you look at it very mildly and then you quickly say that he is the best player,” Van der Vaart opens in Studio Football. “But he is now in the center and he just makes Ajax much better on the ball. He is very comfortable, takes the ball out for a moment and wants to go forward again. He became Man of the Match and that was very deserved.”

According to Van der Vaart, Hato was not directly to blame for the fact that Hato let himself be eaten a bit after Tasos Douvikas’ goal against. “He sits short, falls back a bit and that boy steps back with the ball. Wijndal does nothing at all. He is alone against six Ajax players, make no mistake.”

Coming summer, director Sven Mislintat will thoroughly sweep the selection. Who does Van der Vaart allow to stay? “Hato, Timber, Álvarez, Kudus, Berghuis, Bergwijn and Taylor, but that’s about it. And Brobbey by the way, I would make him first striker and give him full confidence. He is busy and holds a lot of balls.”

Finally, the former international tips: “I would sit down with Dusan Tadic and talk about a different role. That you sometimes come to the couch or are changed. He is very important with his goals and assist, so I would keep him there.”
