(Africanfootball.com) Former AFC Ajax manager Peter Bosz has tipped African stars Hakim Ziyech and Andre Onana to leave the Eredivisie club at the end of the current season.
Both Onana (Cameroon) and Ziyech (Morocco) have become key players for the Amsterdam club, with the former the number one choice in goal, while the latter is a vital part of their attacking force and even won the Dutch top flight’s player of the month accolade in October.
Onana, 22, has been on Ajax’s books since early 2015 and is contracted to June 2021, while Ziyech, 25, has been at the club since August 2016 and is also contracted to the middle of 2021.
Bosz, who was in charge of Ajax in the 2016/17 season and led the club to the final of the UEFA Europa League, believes Ziyech and Onana, as well as rising stars Matthijs de Ligt and Frenkie de Jong, will not be a part of the Dutch club from next season.
"I see Matthijs de Ligt, Frenkie de Jong and Hakim Ziyech leaving Ajax next summer," he told Voetball International.
He also added that "Andre Onana will possibly go as well" in reference to the former Barcelona goalkeeper.
Ajax teammates Onana and Ziyech were ironically in opposite camps on Friday night as Morocco hosted Cameroon in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Casablanca.
