Dutch professional football player Davy Klaassen was born on February 21, 1993. His career in the game has been distinguished by his tenacity, adaptability, and unwavering love for the beautiful game. Klaassen is a key member of the Netherlands national team and plays attacking midfield for Serie A powerhouse Inter Milan.
In 2003, Klaassen moved to HSV Wasmeer from the local amateur team HVV de Zebra’s, where his football career began at the youth level. But his future changed dramatically in 2004 when he enrolled in the prestigious Ajax Youth Academy. In the 2011–12 season, he played a particularly notable role with the Ajax A1 young club. They won the Nike Eredivisie league title and advanced to the NextGen Series final, where they were barely defeated by Inter Milan in a penalty shootout.
His rapid ascent continued as he made his debut for the Ajax first team in the UEFA Champions League group stage against Olympique Lyonnais in November 2011. Klaassen’s Eredivisie debut came just a few days later, where he scored a goal a mere 42 seconds after being subbed on.
His first hat-trick against NAC Breda in December 2013 demonstrated Klaassen’s significant influence at Ajax. Because of his obvious leadership abilities, he was named captain for the 2015–16 campaign, taking over for Niklas Moisander. Klaassen led Ajax with a combination of boyish enthusiasm and strategic experience.
In a highly publicized £23.6 million deal, Klaassen joined Everton in June 2017 to take on a fresh challenge in the Premier League. But he found that managing Everton was difficult, and he had a hard time adjusting to the English style of play. Klaassen persevered in his quest to establish himself despite a challenging season.
Klaassen demonstrated his skill and football acumen by playing a vital role in Ajax’s midfield. Regretfully, an object thrown from the spectators during a 2023 Dutch Cup semifinal matchup between Klaassen and Feyenoord caused him to get a head injury, momentarily stopping play.
In September 2023, Klaassen unexpectedly signed a two-year contract as a free agent with Serie A giants Inter Milan, while having a current contract with Ajax. His contract was amicably terminated by Ajax and Klaassen, demonstrating their appreciation for his career and enabling a seamless transfer to the Italian team.
