Ajax goalkeeper Jay Gorter impresses with “Zlatan-esk” Tour de Force in training | Soccer – to the world

The substitute goalkeeper impressed with a deep ball from teammate Perr Schuurs into the goal, as only Zlatan Ibrahimovic can: floating in the air with one heel behind the (hanging) leg. The leather sailed straight into the intersection.

21-year-old Gorter was taken over by Ajax from Go Ahead Eagles last summer. At the club from Deventer, he broke the Nedelrand record for goals conceded in the Kitchen Champion Division last season. With no less than 25 times he broke Tonny van Leeuwen’s old record from 1970/71.

A total of only 25 goals against Kuwait were also a rarity. Since the Kitchen Champion Division consists of twenty teams, a change introduced in 2013, such a small number had not occurred.

Gorter, born in Purmerend, has only played for Jong Ajax so far. He held a total of seven games for the Amsterdam Promises this season. Due to Maarten Stekelenburg’s injury, however, he has already been on the bench several times with the main force.
