Sheraldo Becker refusing to rule out return to Ajax

Sheraldo Becker has refused to rule out a return to Ajax, admitting that an offer from his former club would be tempting to him.

Becker has been something of a revelation in the Bundesliga this season for Union Berlin, getting six goals in 10 matches thus far.

The 27-year-old signed for the German club in 2019 after spending three years at ADO Den Haag, whom he joined from Ajax after being not given a chance in the Amsterdam club’s first team.

Looking back on his time there, he isn’t bothered that he was never able to make his mark.

“I don’t mind, you have many roads that lead to Rome,” he told De Telegraaf.

“Maybe my time is now. I am working on the most important years of my career. When you are young and playing at Ajax, you want to make your debut, play in the Arena, but if that’s not possible, you have to make choices.

“Other guys went faster, but I’m here now as a 27-year-old and I’m just trying to prove myself again and again.”

That being said, he admits that the opportunity to return to his former club would be a tempting one if it ever arose.

“It could be possible, right?” he added.

“I grew up there. What Ajax stands for and what the club means to me will never change. A next step in the Bundesliga or to another major competition would be wonderful, but if Ajax calls me, it will be another story.

“But those are dreams. I focus on the here and now.”
