Ajax chiefs frustrated losing Dillon Hoogewerf to Man Utd

Ajax chiefs regret losing Dillon Hoogewerf to Manchester United.

The 17 year-old signed pro terms with United this week, announcing the agreement on social media yesterday.

Upon losing Hoogewerf, Ajax academy chief Saïd Ouaali lamented: “Last week Dillon indicated that he will leave the club for a foreign club. We wish him a lot of success.

"We know that we have done everything we can to keep him. Ultimately, however, he can make the choice and he chooses a foreign adventure.

“We know that we have created all the conditions at De Toekomst. Ultimately he can make that choice."

He added: “Of course we want to keep our top talents with us, so I am very happy that the other talents have stayed with us. That has been the case in recent years and that remains our goal."
