After a successful championship in the previous season, the '98-'99 season was a disaster for Ajax Amsterdam. The coach of previous season, Morten Olsen only stayed until December and was replaced by former player Jan Wouters. He managed to win the KNVB Cup but did not reach a better place than 6th in the Eredivisie. In addition, Ajax didnt qualify for the Knock-out stage of the Champions League.
Nevertheless, this rare player spec away jersey is a wonderful shirt in the collection. Again, not commercially available in longsleeves. ABN AMRO sponsor is different than fan versions. The same yield for the badge quality.
