Jurriën Timber seems to be leaving Ajax this summer. Wilfred Genee has learned that the girlfriend of the 21-year-old defender is already house hunting in England.
Genee counts on summer goodbye
Timber dismissed Manchester United last summer, but seems to be moving to the Premier League after this season. Gene revealed in Veronica Offside“It seems his girlfriend is already looking for a house in Liverpool, so he’s probably going.”
Andy van der Meijde thinks Timber is done with it. “You sometimes see in the field that he thinks: God damn it, I wish I had left sooner.” Wesley Sneijder calls him a ‘smart boy’ and praises his qualities, but succeeding in the Premier League? “He loses every header, doesn’t he. Lisandro Martínez is also small, but he can jump and get over everything.”
Sneijder is therefore skeptical about the Orange International and the Premier League. “Fabio Cannavaro used to have the same thing. He was also small, but won every header. Timber doesn’t. I really think he is a top defender, but he lacks length against those cabinets in the Premier League.”
Will Chelsea beat Real Madrid?
