This episode of the Ajax Podcast focuses on our start in the UEFA Europa League. Part one of the two-legged match with Lille will be played on French soil on Thursday. Who better to join us in our look ahead than Anwar El Ghazi? The winger who was active for both clubs and also played in the Europa League for Ajax.
For El Ghazi, this was something of a reunion with former Ajax player Eyong Enoh, now co-host of the Ajax Podcast. The two did not play together in Amsterdam, but did meet each other as opponents. The conversation quickly turned to the match Standard Luik – Ajax (1-1) in December 2016, in which then Ajax player El Ghazi played a leading role.
El Ghazi scored a stunning goal, but also has special memories about Enoh. Laughing: "Do you know what I think of right away about you? Tackles! That match, I was so afraid to get near you. I avoided you."
In this special Europa League episode, Nicolas Blasquez, Lille watcher for the French news agency AFP, and Sky Sports commentator and Eredivisie expert Jonathan Beck, also gave their vision and expectations for the splendid match-up.
