Perhaps it is a case of the right place at the wrong time. Hendrick Ekstein is undoubtedly a talented footballer; however, supporters of big clubs are impatient and they are not happy with the slow pace at which Ekstein has found his feet at Naturena.
The supporters certainly have some thoughts on the matter, though.
"Ekstein is a complete footballer, pity Steve can't see that." – Slow Poison
"Chiefs are under pressure, that's why Ekstein is not given a chance." – Chicco
"Ekstein was spotted by the wrong club… He is the perfect link between the midfielders and strikers." – rockyrantsa
"The things that 'Pule' Ekstein does on a field are amazing. It's just that he was spotted by the wrong club." – Mthobisi69
"They should loan Ekstein to smaller teams." – okuh
"Chiefs should do these boys some justice by loaning them to Ajax CT." – Mr-Brown-Envelope
It seems that everyone thinks Ekstein has some footballing ability, but perhaps the pressure is too much for him to be tried and trusted at Chiefs, or perhaps the structure there is just not right for him.
Do you think Ekstein would thrive at a smaller club like Ajax?
