    Ajax have had an amazing 2018-19 season with a team built around young stars Frenkie De Jong, Matthijs de Ligt and Hakim Ziyech, but how do Ajax build a successful team and then prepare for the break-up?
    BBC Sport's Football Focus travelled to Amsterdam to meet Edwin Van Der Sar. There we heard how Ajax's philosophy and DNA continues to produce exciting talent in a football world that has changed completely since their last major European success.

BBC Sport - Yes, unfortunately, we are about to see an exodus of Ajax's most talented players! It always seems to happen with Ajax. It's exactly what happened to Louis Van Gaal's famous Champions League-winning Ajax (containing Kluivert, Seedorf, Edgar Davids, Rijkaard, the de Boer twins, Overmars, Reiziger, and van der Sar) of 1995.

Contrary to popular belief Frenkie De Jong is not Ajax through and through as he was signed as an 18 year old from Willem II.

If Ajax was playing in England, Spain, Italy any country like that, then they wouldn't need to keep selling their best players because the only reason these players leave is to play in leagues with more exposure on it and better quality of league. But playing in Holland, players will always want to test themself in the bigger leagues. Shame. As Ajax, keep selling. PSG are in France, but don't have to sell their players where Ajax always sell.

I’m watching this video as tired Arsenal fan! And I’ve always been aware of the history of Ajax, but it really is refreshing watching these videos, Ajax are an iconic football club! And since arsenal aren’t getting money thrown at them, they could really learn a thing or two from Ajax! This academy hasn’t just been good for 2-3 years, this club has produced world class talent for decades!! I cannot picture my beloved arsenal ever winning anything at the moment, but these young lads at Ajax all have great futures, not something I can say about Arsenal Football Club 🙄

Ajax doesn't have 200-300mill/season(never had it)to buy the best players,so they got only one choice find the talent,bring em to the club as little kids,and raise them together to be competitive even against the best players of rich/big clubs.....

hahah bro why are al the muslims so fcking frustated the whole time about Ziyech? He isn't a product of the club and he is already 26 years old. So this item doesn't match at all with Ziyech because they try to tell us something about the academy and our (yes i'm a Ajax fan) youngsters. Don't cry about this, nobody cares.

In voetbal zie je weer hoe chauvinistisch iedereen is. Nederlanders praten alleen over een de Jong of de Ligt alsof het toekomstige peles en maradonnas zijn.. En Marokkanen lijken te denken dat Ziyech voetbal heeft uitgevonden. Kunnen we het erover eens zijn dat het allemaal geweldige voetballer zijn en blij zijn dat een club uit het land waar we wonen verdomme weer eens ver komt met onze (Nederlandse en Marokkaans Nederlandse in dit geval) jongens

Precies dit, moet je kijken onder dit filmpje hoeveel mensen er zitten te janken dat Ziyech niet genoemd wordt en allemaal met een Arabische naam terwijl Tadic zijn stats gewoon aantoonbaar beter zijn, zeker na de winterstop presteert Ziyech gemiddeld gewoon minder.

Hakim Ziyech is the best player on the team but he is not even mentioned. He carries the team game in and game out. Both his goals and his unselfish assists are extraordinary. You might say that they were talking about the academy, but they did mention two experienced players who did not come through the ranks of the academy. They deliberately ignored paying tribute to Ziyech's contributions. What a shame! I don't know if it is jealousy or racism. He chose to play for Morocco instead of the Netherland and they cannot stand his decision. I cannot believe it.

@DutchF ootball actually, I do but I feel that you were not addressing my initial point. I have nothing against the Dutch people or team. My point was about the sports commentators who chose not to mention ziyech. Notice I didn't mention Mezzraoui or lbyed or the third/second keeper. It's the elephant in the middle of the room. If I accused anyone, it was those commentators, not you, not the Dutch team and not the Dutch people. For this reason, I did not write back because though you made some good points, you were not addressing my initial point to which you replied. I want you to know that Moroccans we're hoping that Ajax beat Tottenham, partially because of the Moroccan players and partially because they love this young Dutch team. We were heart broken at the loss as you probably were.

@Noureddine El Alam Noureddine, I totally do not understand your point that you think they didn't mentioned his name because of jealousy or racism. Absolutely BS! The fact is that the supporters of Ajax crowned Hakim as player of the year and Mazraoui as talent of the year. Both players are very respected on the pitch and outside…. I don't know why you think I did not respect his choice for the Moroccan national team.... I never mentioned that in my comments. But if you are comparing the Moroccan national team with the dutch team.... stating that you lost the finals to qualify for the WC and have to compete with 52 nations…… how do you want me to take you serious? You really want to compare the top 5 of the UEFA with the top 5 of the CAF? The highest ranked CAF national team is Senegal #23... 8 teams of the UEFA are in top 10. Never ever reached an African club the top 4 in the world cup.... Do you know how many the times the dutch national team reached the final in the world cup, the final in the european cup.... you know that we won the european cup? In 2010 we reached the final in the world cup, in 2014 the half final in the world cup. Are you aware how many players in the morrocan national team are born in and raised in the Netherlands, going through one of the many dutch youth squads? Ziyech (born in Dronten, youth squad Heerenveen), El Ahmadi (born in Enschede, FC Twente), Mazraoui (born Leiderdorp, Ajax), Idrissi (born Bergen op Zoom, NAC Breda) Amrabat (born Huizen, FC Utrecht) etc. Actually 90%of your national team is born and raised outside Morocco. You were kicked out in first round, after not qualifing for 20 years!!!! for the World cup. And you are really stating that it presumptuous to think that the dutch team is better? Jeez….. where have you been all those years? Please don't tell me you never heard of van Basten, Bergkamp, Cruijf, van Persie, Robben etc.

@DutchF ootball Red herring! You did not address my problem with the commentators.   Re. your point, I'm glad that Ziyesh picked Morocco and you have got to respect his decision. He does appreciate the support he got in the Netherlands, but you have to respect his decision for he has to make one and he chose Morocco. Second, why do you assume that the your national team is better that the Moroccan national team? Do you know how many times we lost the finals to qualify for the W.C.? Do you know that we compete with 52 nations to make the top five. Why didn't you make it when the number of nations competing is much smaller and a lot more make it to the world cup from Europe? I have nothing against the Netherland, but it is presumptuous for your to think that your team is better than the Moroccan national team. Did you watch this World Cup and the VAR?

Ziyech is the best player Ajax has. Without him there is no creativity and it's like you miss an extra man on the field. His work ethic is incredible, he has lungs like a horse. You can find him everywhere on the field defending and almost has a 100% involvement in a goal in every match. Check his statistics.

And without De jong there is no build up to get the ball to Ziyech. Without Van de Beek making runs Ziyech has no space. Without De Ligt there is no one to defend the attackers. Its the TEAM and the chemistry of the players that makes Ajax so strong not one individual
