Vermeer happy in Amsterdam

I am a man who loves stability. In my career as a goalkeeper and at the club and team of Ajax.

It does not mean that my ambitions are different from those of the players around me.

Every professional footballer should decide for themselves if and when he chooses a foreign adventure. My focus is on winning prizes.

– Ajax goalkeeper Kenneth Vermeer speaking to De Telegraaf
