Ajax Manager Has Surprising Update On Tim Krul


Tim Krul is still coming back from his very serious ACL injury and he has yet to play for the Ajax first team, but he has played for the Ajax reserve side a few times now.

The Chronicle has a short interview with Ajax manager Peter Bosz today and Peter has said there’s a long way between playing for the Ajax first team and the reserves side.

Tim Krul – still to make his debut for Ajax

We would have expected Tim to have been playing by now, so it’s not such a big a shock that Tim is pushing hard to get his first game for Ajax, but Bosz says they have to protect Tim from himself after such a serious injury.

This is what Bosz has said in the Chronicle today about Tim:

“Medically there is no problem but there is a big difference between Ajax and Young Ajax – the reserves.”

“Things are getting better but there is still a long way before he is clear. Also, not every cruciate ligament injury can be compared.”

“The difficulty with Krul is that he is so eager, which I understand.”  “Sometimes you have to protect him from himself – he had a serious injury.”

We’re surprised that Bosz says there’s still a long way to go before Tim is clear to play, since it’s almost 14 months since Tim picked up the cruciate ligament injury.

20 year-old Cameroon International Andre Onana is in goal at the moment at Ajax and he’s played 20 times this season for Ajax and made his debut for Cameroon in September in a friendly against Gabon.

He is almost certain to be in the Cameroon squad for the upcoming African Cup of Nations next month – so if Tim cannot make the team before then it’s likely he will get his chance in January.

Comments welcome.

    I find the comments strange how can Krul be medically OK for the reserves but not the first team? If Bosz (good name for a manager by the way 🙂 ) had said he is not back at a high enough level for the first team then I could understand it.

    Forgot to say, either way, I have a feeling he’ll never play for NUFC again.

    I agree, I don’t think he will have the hunger he once has at SJP.

    Been a great keeper for us and we will never forget his debut v Palmero but maybe it’s time for him to move.

    The few times I’ve seen Snodgrass I’ve been very impressed, he’d be a greet signing in my opinion.

    Charley Taylor always seems to be under pressure in a struggling team so it’s hard to form an opinion of him.

    I’ve never seen mindshaft’s nan playing so can’t really give an opinion on her.

    I’d like to see our two young wunderkids blooded at some point in the new year.

    Finally I have no doubt that Rafa all hail him) will surprised us with a signing/s no one had any clue about.

    Actually I might be thinking of the wrong Taylor in my previous comment. So please disregard what I said about him.

    Get rid.

    Don’t miss his hesitancy and flapping at every cross or his complete inability to kick a ball. Gone drastically backwards. Remember talk of him being the heir to Van Der Sar when he first emerged. HA!

    Snodgrass would be a great signing at the price being quoted
    a quality play who knows where the goal is prem experience and a cool head can play 7/10 or 11 and great with a dead ball
    would be a huge asset for the run in and beyond

    Essex Geordie Bill @5 – I think you also might be thinking of the wrong mindshaft’s nan as I’m sure I’ve seen her playing for England 😀

    Robert Snodgrass is a definite option.
    I think Charlie Taylor would be a good option too.
    Dominic Solanke from Chelsea could be a good future prospect.
    How about Paul George Ntep – contract expires this summer, 24 years old, pretty good goal and assist record, left winger (gouffran replacement)
    If Rafa could wave a magic wand a possible no.10 could be Yunus Milli – plays at FSV Mainz in Germany. Contract expiring summer 2017, club open to offers, good assists and goal record

    Mr Funk
    i dont know enough about those player other than Snodgrass and Taylor to comment
    but i have feeling Rafa will be bringing players in who can hit the ground running not players who will need settling time

    Krul can go in my opinion. Darlow (apart from a couple of moments last season) has given us no reason not to get behind him, he is young and ambitious.
    Rob Elliot a good back up.

    The only way this would change is if we went for Forster or another top top keeper

    Bambams, doubt he’s skint mate. He probably had a bet on himself to be sacked before Christmas, when he was on a good run. 🙂 He’s still done well on the timing though – not something you normally associate with Pardew. 🙂

    Please get every geordie you know to flood the internet with “deluded palace fans” comments and highlighting Palace are more deluded than anyone as they should be happy just being in the PL so what are they expecting” exactly the crap we had to take.

    Bbc website will have it running soon with the comments section.

    No doubt he is ‘Larfing’ all the way to the bank, however his big mate Parish has hung him out here.

    I thought he would of been given January at least but that has not happened.

    What price Big Sam ?

    Obviously the timing suggests they must have someone in mind and have they demanded the trsnsfer window ?

    on Snodgrass if it’s 5mill then it’s a no brainer, bring him in.

    Would like Charlie Taylor and Delph and/or Loftus-Cheek on loan.

    Hahahaha —–King Percy sacked – he couldn’t blag out his job anymore.
    All the crap NUFC fans put up with from the press when he was here, when he went to Palace, where many a hack said it was his natural home and he would flourish.
    To think some on here thought he was top drawer – yeee knaa who yeez are no more eel pie and the King Percy goal dance will now be forgotten.

    We’ve been 100% vindicated. We know it. They know it. We could gloat, but I can’t be bothered myself. Why reopen old wounds with fans who were loyally bound to defend their ex player? We would have done the same if we’re honest. Not saying you shouldn’t though, fill ye boots. Some of them deserve it, no doubt about it. 🙂 Two teams who’ve struggled under Pardew have more in common really. Still, that said, what’s that website mate? 🙂 🙂

    Bambams, no point giving him transfer money if you’re even thinking of sacking him mate. You’re probably right on having someone lined up, or the window would go to waste. Wonder if hippo heed making that statement about China was a red herring? Not wanting to be seen as hawking for his job.

    Hands up, I thought pardew could get them to lower mid table. Wrong wrong wrong Munster. Quietly pleased though as I didn’t like his excuses, even if he had good moments with us. Can someone tweet Ian Wright please?

    Moyes to walk or be sacked by Mackems, Pardew to take charge and take them down.

    That would be beautiful.

    Eddie Howe is just another flavour of the month until he proves otherwise. Achieved nothing. There isn’t a top English manager.

    Big Sam with John Carver as replacements at Palace before the Mackems can sign them to replace Moyes who must be thinking he wants to move a bigger club like Palace.

    Santa – so sorry I ever doubted you
