We all know him as the Golden Boy, this sturdy defender is one of the most promising players in European football and probably the most promising defender of his generation. He might very well be the best defender in the world one day and he is well on his way to become a great player. He was born and raised at Ajax, joining the famous youth academy of the Amsterdam team in 2008. He was always one of the finest prospects of the academy, mostly because of his massive fysical ability. He was always a whole lot stronger than his teammates and oppononents. He joined the first team of Ajax in 2016 and his first full season playing for the first team he immediately reached the finals of UEFA Europa League in the spring of 2017. In the summer of 2019 he was bought by Italian Giants Juventus. They paid a very high fee to acquire him: 75 Million Euro. He also is a regular player for the Dutch national team. He started his international career perhaps a bit too early, after one of the worst managers in Holland's history (Danny Blind) let him make his debut in the starting 11 at a very young age. The Golden Boy was only 17 years old at the time and made a few mistakes that ultimately made Holland lose the match. Right now he has already developed to be the man at the back for Holland, together with world-class defender Virgil van Dijk.
