Adriaanse said, “The current Willem II team are playing to their nickname ‘ Ajax of the South.’

“They are playing very attractive attacking football their manager Jurgen Streppel is doing well and I hope they stay up”.

“With Hupperts, Ogbeche and Anderson they had a good front three, but it’s a shame that Ogbeche is injured at the moment.”

Co Adriaanse does also not hold back regarding his opinion of Ajax, “By Ajax the sparks are certainly not flying and they are certainly not nice to watch during games.

“They are playing far too carefully and they take far too few risks when attacking and they therefore do not concede many goals.

“In general the current style of play by Willem II is much more attractive than Ajax at this current moment in time “.
