Ajax posted a nostalgic tweet about Luis Suarez and Matthijs de Ligt but it seemed to go down the wrong way
Whoever runs Ajax’s Twitter was in a mischievous mood tonight.
On the surface it was all innocent.
Ajax tweeted a nostalgic photo of former player Luis Suarez with current defender Matthijs de Ligt, when the latter was a ball boy.
But take a second look.
The caption underneath the tweet reads ‘Matthijs de Ligt and Luis Suarez together in one team next year?’ along with the obligatory emojis.
Interesting. Very interesting. Especially when you consider Barcelona have been heavily linked with a move for the 18-year-old, who already has two international caps.
There was more.
Ajax finished the tweet by making it clear that the two would be reunited in the Amsterdam Arena. Cue another suggestive emoji.
So is Suarez making a spectacular return to Ajax?
We’d highly doubt it, although Suarez has cut a frustrated figure at Barcelona of late.
Maybe they’re just trying to announce the sale of De Ligt to Barcelona on the sly, with a pre-season friendly against the La Liga giants chucked in for good measure.
If it’s just a spectacular…
