Ex-Ajax star Kieft: You can't complain about Sanchez Tottenham sale

Former Ajax star Wim Kieft believes his old club has been naive over Davinson Sanchez's move to Tottenham.

Ajax and Spurs have settled on a €45m fee, which was agreed last night.

Kieft doesn't understand why so many are upset with the Colombia international defender's behaviour.

He told Ziggo Sports: "Players now have more power than before, even if it sounds so annoying.

"It's very naive of Ajax how they respond now," says Kieft. "You bought a defender with the idea to sell him. They only responded very badly.

"It's worse allowing Kenny Tete and Jairo Riedewald to leave, who are familiar with the Ajax system, and they are getting too short (of numbers)."
