zivkThe 18-year-old forward has been a regular feature in the Netherlands U19 squad recently, starting the 1-1 draw with Scotland on Saturday, but an off the field issue has seen Zivkovic expelled from the training camp.

A statement from coach Aron Winter read, “Richairo been sent home because of unprofessional behavior,”

“He has had several chances, but sometimes you’re forced to intervene as a coach. Next Tuesday we play against Belgium and this is our last game before the next qualifying round for the European Championship. So its important.”

Zivkovic signed for Ajax from Groningen last summer, but has yet to feature in the Eredivisie this season, and is instead the top scorer for Jong Ajax in the Eerste Divisie.
