Ajax are exploring the option of re-signing Brian Brobbey back from RB Leipzig before he has even arrived at the Bundesliga side. Brobbey's contract expires in June, and he decided against extending his time with Ajax in favour of joining Leipzig on a free transfer next season. He signed a contract through to 2025 back in March, but reports suggest he is now getting cold feet on the move after manager Julian Nagelsmann agreed to join Bayern Munich.
A helicopter parade to celebrate promotion Ajax have found a unique way to do exactly that after winning the 2020-21 title, to reward their fanatical fans in a unique way: by giving them a piece of the actual trophy. Or, as they are calling it, "a piece of Ajax." Each year the winner of the Eredivisie is given a bespoke shield made by De Tingieterij, a company based in Alphen aan de Maas, 90 kilometres (56 miles) from the Dutch capital.
Ajax Amsterdam have found an ingenious way to reward their fans for putting up with missing much of a title-winning season, melting down their Eredivisie trophy to give tiny silver stars to more than 42,000 season-ticket holders. Each star will weigh 3.45g and contain 0.06g from the trophy, which was awarded to Ajax for their 35th league triumph. The Royal Dutch Football Association gave the club a replica to display in their trophy cabinet.
