Adam Swandi and Amer Nazri to head to Ajax academy

The Singapore U16 captain and the U15 defender will have a training stint at the world famous Ajax academy

After being encouraged by Ajax Amsterdam's U15 coach Michel Kreek to head to Europe, Adam Swandi will get his chance earlier than expected.

The Singapore U16 captain was selected together with Amer Nazri from the Singapore U15 side for a training stint at the Ajax youth academy.

Both players had been selected as the Most Valuable Players for their respective teams by a panel comprising of coaches from the participating teams at the 24th Canon Lion City Cup as well as the media and the organising committee.

The date and specific time frame for their trip to Ajax has yet to be confirmed, pending agreements on schedules from both Ajax and the Football Association of Singapore.
