John Steel Olsen is a former Danish footballer who spent his entire career in the Dutch league. In his retirement, Olsen joined the team of scouts from Ajax Amsterdam and has proven his talent to cast the tie to the promises of Scandinavian football, as his hand reached the Dutch team players like Ibrahimovic or Eriksen.
The last great “hunting” Olsen for Ajax is called Kasper Dolberg, it is Danish and also going to star. Just over a year ago this guy debuted in the first team of Silkeborg, the team of his hometown, and is now one of the names Ajax holder in the forward position and with a background of 11 goals in 21 Matches, between league, cup and European competition.
Olsen had followed the boy closely, fixed in the lower echelons of the selection of Denmark at age 14, so I still had not reached even debut in the Danish first division and Ajax already had his tie. His first destination was the youth team, where starting from the right end his performances gave him the jump to the first team for this season.
His debut in a Champions League qualifier, with goal included, was the most exciting for Ajax at that time. The team surpassed the first round against PAOK but not next to the Rostov, but the disappointment was less seeing the letter of Dolberg, which throughout the group stage of the Champions League has made suffer opposing defenses, including Celta de Vigo.
While youth is mainly unfolded on the right, the Dutch coach Peter Bosz prefers center forward and that is where he has earned the starting job. He’s a big player, with 1.86 high, but not a ‘9’ to use and among its qualities include its range of movement and cold blood when defining unbecoming of a boy of just 19 years.
Sponsored by Dennis Bergkamp himself, now an assistant at Ajax and the first to rave about Dolberg, despite his youth and we have seen his debut with the national team in Denmark. Not in vain, it is the most talented promise of football in this country and the top scorer of an Ajax plagued by young players to follow, like this Kasper Dolberg.
