Maarten Stekelenburg sustained a foot injury during Ajax’s training camp in De Lutte, the club reports on Friday. The 39-year-old goalkeeper has now gone home and will be sidelined for at least a few days.
The 28-man selection of trainer Alfred Schreuder in De Lutte now has three keepers with Remko Pasveer, Jay Gorter and eighteen-year-old Sten Kremers. Ajax’s training camp in the Overijssel village will last until Sunday.
Ajax will play a practice match against SC Paderborn at Sportpark Vondersweijde in Oldenzaal on Saturday, which will play in the 2. Bundesliga.
Stekelenburg extended his contract with Ajax for a year last week, making him the first forty-year-old ever in the selection of the team from Amsterdam next season.
