Just like in the midweek match against Olympique Marseille, he performed well in the Ajax shirt on Sunday. The attacker of the team from Amsterdam gave a nice assist, but at that moment he could also have lay down for a penalty. He didn’t, because before Brobbey starts scoring penalties, something has to change at Ajax.
In conversation with ESPN After winning the match against NEC (1-2), Brobbey looks back on the match and also on the moment before his assist with a big smile on his face. Ajax’s strong striker was clearly held by NEC defender Bram Nuytinck, but remained on his feet: “I am eager for my goals,” Brobbey explains his choice not to go to the ground. “I turned away well and wanted to shoot myself at first, but I saw Kristian Hlynsson in a better position.”

For Brobbey himself, it is also a factor that he is not allowed to be the first one behind the ball when Ajax gets a penalty, as he admits with a wink: “Bergwijn is at the top for penalties, right? Only if I had been allowed to take it myself.” I might have let myself fall,” says the 21-year-old attacker of the Amsterdam team, laughing.
