The head coach of the Dutch Eredivisie side Ajax Amsterdam Jon Heitinga has confirmed that Nigeria’s Super Eagles defender Calvin Bassey will return to the team starting lineup this weekend.
The Nigerian International has missed a couple of games but the team handler made it clear that he will replace the suspended Alvarez on Sunday.
“Just Bassey, yes. ‘Is he out of favour? No. Only in the last games we chose Álvarez.
He has been suspended, then it is a doll for the doll in this case.’
“But Calvin is just a very, very good defender,” Heitinga said.
Bassey joined Ajax last summer from the Scottish side Glasgow Rangers and he has been in and out of the team.
