Following Ajax Amsterdam Sunday’s defeat to Utrecht in the Eredivisie, former Super Eagles captain, Sunday Oliseh, has expressed his concern that his former club might be relegated, PUNCH Sports Extra reports.
Ajax suffered a 4-3 defeat to Utrecht at the Stadion Galgenwaard, their fourth of the 2023/24 season and are currently 17th on the log with just five points from seven games.
The Sons of the Gods, as they are fondly called, were champions of the Dutch league in the 2020/21 and 2021/22 seasons but now found themselves languishing at the bottom of the table with only one win so far this season.
Their defeat to Utrecht marked their fourth loss this season, a concerning trend for Oliseh, who wore the Amsterdam-based club’s jersey during his playing career.
In response to their poor performance, Oliseh suggested that Ajax might even face the possibility of relegation to the second tier of the Dutch league.
“It’s been quite sad watching an extremely disappointing Ajax’s first half today. I have never seen my ex-club this poor! At this rate, Ajax just might get relegated as strange as it sounds. Lots of work needs to be done on all sections!!” he wrote on his X (formerly Twitter) feed.
Ajax, alongside PSV and Feyenoord, are historically recognized as the “Big Three” in the Eredivisie, as they are the only clubs to have retained their top-tier status since the league’s inception without facing relegation.The recent downturn in Ajax’s fortunes raises concerns about the potential for a surprising turn of events, which could see these giants competing in the Erste Divisie.
