Toby, Jan, Christian and Davinson - Ajax photo scrapbook

Mon 29 April 2019, 15:46|Tottenham Hotspur

It’s the tie they’d all been hoping for. Our ex-Ajax quartet find themselves up against their former club for the first time on Tuesday night – in nothing less than a Champions League semi-final!

Jan Vertonghen, Christian Eriksen and Toby Alderweireld all grew up and emerged onto the senior stage with the illustrious Dutch outfit, while Davinson Sanchez spent a year honing his craft in Amsterdam after moving from Atletico Nacional in his homeland of Colombia.

Ahead of this intriguing two-legged European clash, the talented quartet took part in a special feature for our official matchday programme on Tuesday night – now available to pre-order – in which they reflect on their time in Amsterdam with the aid of a select set of photographs and explain what it means to them to be facing their old friends with a place in the Champions League Final up for grabs.

“It’s so weird!” smiled Jan. “I’ve always wanted to play against Ajax… even PSV or Feyenoord. I missed the two games against PSV earlier this season so I’ve never been back to Holland to play and now Ajax in the Champions League semi-final… it’s extremely weird for me as someone who grew up there. I grew up in the city, I grew up with everyone at the Club, I still know everyone and it’s going to be very strange to be on the other side.”

Read the views of Christian, Toby and Davinson in Tuesday night’s official matchday programme – available to pre-order online now and on sale around the stadium at the game, priced at £5 for our 100-page A4 Champions League special edition.

Here are some of the photos the lads looked back on and the memories they invoked of their time in Amsterdam…
