Super Eagles defender, Calvin Bassey is part of the 24-man Ajax squad traveling to England to face Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday despite suffering a knock during the weekend.
Ajax travel to England to face another European powerhouse, Liverpool at famous turf, Anfield in the second group stage game of the 2022/23 UEFA Champions League.
Calvin Bassey suffered a sprain on his knee and was forced off the pitch at the latter stages of Ajax 5-0 demolition of SC Heerenveen despite exhausting all their substitution already.
Ajax manager, Schreuder had earlier spoken to ESPN on Bassey’s injury and hinted on his availability, “We were able to switch well. Maybe we switch the last player a little too early, but I thought we could do that.
“Fortunately, Calvin Bassey is not so bad. It was a kick in the calf, so that’s not too bad.”
“He (Bassey) said it’s no problem.’’
The young and versatile defender made his Champions League debut on an emotional night last match week against his former club, Rangers.
