  • Ajax is a good nursery team for Young stars….Ajax only sells players to the likes of Barcelona Madrid Man utd Liverpool Bayern Munich Juventus and the likes……So expect bassey in one of those teams in a year or two From now…… Bassey will definitely be a main stay in Ajax’s first team……The coach at Ajax spoke to Bassey yesterday and he has a lot of regard for bassey……In Ajax bassey will win a couple of trophies too and rub shoulders with elite players in the UCL….. lastly the Dutch league is live on ESPN which is on DStv so Bassey’s fans will be watching him week in week out…….Rangers bought him for $250k and selling him for $20m which is $19.75m gain in less that two years…….Bassey is still very young and will command a very hefty price when moving on from Ajax……It’s a win win deal for all parties involved……Rangers wins,Ajax wins,Bassey wins,SE wins,SE fans wins.

    • Good comment bro, I was a little bit scared when I heard he went to London, I was praying he shouldn’t join Brighton, because Ajax is a better option in every way

  • You dey current bro, 5 year deal is imminent.
    Followed TJ Babangida, Oliseh, Ikedia and Current assistant Coach of Naija Finito. I’m sure he’ll get advice from him (Finidi) and Rangers’ Dutch Coach GVB, even his former rangers team mate Balogun will tell him how he suffered in Brighton.
    Nice move Bassey.

  • I can’t wait to see Bassey in Ajax, playing Champion League, and also winning trophies.
    He’s a big club material, the sky is only your limit bro.
    All the best.
