Ajax’s team from Holland has passed part of its pre-season in Qatar. 10 days precisely. The team has trained at the Aspire Zone. The place is one of the European clubs favourites for winter drills. Clubs from Germany, Belgium, Russia and Austria have already trained in the place. Ajax’s present coach, Frank De Boer, knows Qatar well. He played in Al Rayyan and in Al Shamal between 2004 and 2006.
