The more the season progresses, the less Edson Álvarez plays at Ajax and his lack of minutes should already be a cause for concern for the canterano de América. Don’t forget to follow us on our Instagram account, 90min_en, and our twitter account, @ 90minespanolAfter signing in the summer with Ajax de Holanda, Álvarez played several games as a starter, scoring goals in the Champions League and having constant minutes. However, as the campaign has progressed, the Mexican has been relegated to banking and the midfield has been occupied by Lisandro Martínez and the youth Ryan Gravenberch, a Dutchman of just 17 years old. Edson himself has stated that he has been distracted, as He has not seen much of his family and the adaptation has been really difficult, because Dutch football, needless to say, is very different from the one played in the MX League: “ I have had many talks with Tata, very important, he It was very important for this big step to come to play European football, a recognized coach, and play in that position is where I better develop, play ahead of the centrals, being a more defensive player that really are my characteristics, out there They, knowing that I am a more defensive player, asked me for other things. ” The effective adaptation of Lisandro Martínez, 22, has relegated Edson to the bench. The Argentine has played 91% of the minutes played in the Eredivise, while the ‘Machín’ has only played 24% of the minutes. That Erik ten Haag has been inclined by Gravenberch on Álvarez is more than worrying, because he could be erased from the team’s plans, at least until he adheres to Netherlands football, as Frank de Boer mentioned. Time is running out for Edson Álvarez and he has to modify and adapt his game as soon as possible, because even he has already declared that he would be open to a movement to the MLS, because of the lifestyle in the United States. This would be a serious mistake and a huge setback in his career.
