Davy Klaassen cannot wait to start his second period at Ajax. The midfielder left Amsterdam only three years ago, but does not think it is too early to return to the club where he went through the youth academy.

“The moment I left, I really wanted to leave to see what it is like abroad”, says Klaassen, who signed a four-year contract with Ajax, in conversation with Tuesday. The Telegraph. “I wouldn’t have missed Everton and Werder Bremen for the world, but now was the time to return.”

The 27-year-old Hilversummer left in the summer of 2017 for 27 million euros from Ajax to Everton, but his adventure at ‘The Toffees’ ended in disappointment. After one season in the Premier League, Klaassen opted for Werder Bremen and there he forced a permanent starting place.

Last season Klaassen went through a difficult period with the Bundesliga club, which narrowly escaped relegation. “Some people think that you cannot make the step to Ajax if you have played against relegation at Werder Bremen”, the sixteen-time international refers to his critics.

“But it is much more difficult to show yourself there than in the Netherlands, because you play much less on half of the opponent. Incidentally, I have had a lot more positive than negative reactions to my return, you know.”

Klaassen, who can handle both controlling and attacking midfielder, realizes that Ajax is expected to be of immediate value. “I put that pressure on myself. I know that a lot is expected of me and I do that myself. I think I am ready to show myself.”
