Ajax mistakenly omit record signing from Euro list


Ajax Amsterdam have confirmed that they mistakenly left off their record signing Sebastien Haller from their Europa League list.

Clubs competing in the Europa League round of 32 submitted their final squads, which consists of up to 25 players, on Wednesday, but Haller was not included in Ajax’s list.

“It is indeed true that Haller is not on our Europa League list of players,” an Ajax spokesperson told ESPN.

“We are working with the KNVB and UEFA to find out where things went wrong,”

It is not clear whether the error was caused by Ajax, the Dutch FA or UEFA but if the club are at fault, they will not be able to amend the situation.

There were other discrepancies with the submitted lists as Siebe Schrijvers’ name appeared twice in the section of players excluded from Belgian side Club Brugge on UEFA’s website.

Ajax were drawn against Lille in the Europa League round of 32 and will play for the first leg in France on 18 February.
