Idrissi could not refuse the offer to immediately exchange Seville for Ajax. „I had not actually taken into account that I would leave Seville, but then suddenly Ajax came knocking. Nobody had to give me advice, because you don’t turn down an offer like that ”, said the winger on the website of the Amsterdam club.
The leader of the Eredivisie did business with the Spanish club on the last day of the transfer period. Ajax will be hiring Idrissi for the coming months. “I am very happy. And also honored to act in the beautiful Johan Cruijff ArenA and to become part of a very good team. ”
24-year-old Idrissi left AZ for Sevilla last October. The Spanish club paid more than 12 million euros for him. Idrissi played 98 games for the club from Alkmaar and was good for 37 goals and 25 assists. The international of Morocco has hardly had any playing time in Spain in recent months. He is eager to make his debut for his new team.
“I’m going to try to do my bit,” said Idrissi. “The future here is bright. I hope to show you nice things. We are active on three fronts and are in a good starting position. The spirit and quality of football must be maintained. Then there will be very nice months for the players and the fans. ”
The fact that Idrissi was able to come to Amsterdam is the result of a temporary rule change by FIFA. Normally you can play for a maximum of two clubs in a season. Because he already made minutes for AZ and Sevilla, he would therefore no longer be able to work at Ajax. Due to the corona crisis and the strange season structure, there is a one-off exception to that rule this year.
