After Jong Ajax's 0-3 defeat against Telstar, Ar'Jany Martha responded to John van 't Schip's harsh criticism. Ajax's coach decided to pass Martha last week for the won Conference League match against FK Bodø/Glimt (1-2 after extra time).

The twenty-year-old left back was surprisingly not part of the match selection for the European second leg in Norway in midweek. Martha was also passed over for the league match against AZ (2-0 loss) last Sunday.

According to Van 't Schip, the right winger and left back has simply not performed enough recently. In addition, according to the trainer, Martha 'didn't go all the way'.

“It's part of the process he's in. We are at a professional club here, it is not a charity. You have to perform and play well, he clearly couldn't do that,” Van 't Schip indicated.

“It's also about how you perform on the field, that wasn't good enough. We didn't feel that there was anyone who was going for it, for whatever reason. That's why we decided he won't come along.”

Martha's response

Martha played 63 minutes on behalf of Jong Ajax on Monday evening during the loss against Telstar and responded afterwards in front of the camera of ESPN. to the harsh words of his trainer.

“I'd rather just talk about the match, but it's a tough world. I have to accept it and move on. I have to keep doing my thing and then I will get there,” the twenty-year-old Ajax player said.
