Picture of the 1.80 m (5 ft 11 in) tall Dutch centre back of Ajax Amsterdam

Born in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, to a very successful footballer, his career path was pretty much decided for him even before he was born. His father Danny was an Ajax legend, but that didn't stop him from enrolling his son at Amsterdamsche FC's academy. He spent three years between ages 5 and 8, there. After taking to the sport, he naturally moved to Ajax's academy. He advanced through their system, and initially played as a midfielder in his youth. He could still be used as one, but he's settled in as a defender and now plays as a center-back. His first stint at Ajax did not take off until after he completed a very brief stay at Groningen, where he played as a right back. He returned to Ajax to be used at the left back position, but found his feet after his role was changed and he moved to the midfield. He'd win four successive Eredivisie titles from the 2010-11 season onwards before transferring to Manchester United in 2014. His stay in England was not very successful because he was being played out of position. However, he did win some silverware during his time there. He returned to Ajax in 2018 and won the Eredivisie on his first season back. He also features quite regularly for the Dutch team. He was a part of the 2014 squad that finished third in that year's World Cup. Considering that he's almost 30, we reckon that he'll finish his career in the Eredivisie with Ajax.
