Ajax director Sven Mislintat has explained why the club dropped plans to sign Armenian talent Eduard Spertsyan from Krasnodar FC. The midfielder had long been on the club’s wishlist.
“It wasn’t about his abilities but that he plays in Russia,” Mislintat told De Telegraaf.
“He could’ve been at Ajax similar to what De Bruyne is at Man City. A special player, you can’t find someone like him for this amount of money.”
