I just finished the afternoon training when I entered my office. I sat down on my chair while I turned on my computer. Every day I think about the offer of Tottenham a few years ago, what would life look like if I didn’t declined it, what would life look like now? I would probably play European football, I would work with players like Kane, Eriksen and Vertonghen, instead I work with Sanogo, Veltman and Gudelj. Even though I love Ajax and that it will always be my number one, I kinda want to leave but I neither want to betray Ajax. Tessa the assistant of the club walks in
Tessa: Good day mister de Boer! How are you?
Me: I’m always good when you’re around Tessa
Tessa: I have a boyfriend Frank
Me: such a shame
Tessa: Anyway, Would you like some coffee mister de Boer
Me: My name is Frank Tessa
Tessa: Would you like some coffee Frank?
Me: Yes please
Tessa: Anything else Frank?
Me: Your number?
Tessa: Sorry Frank, no chance
As Tessa leaves the room I log in on my computer. I open my mail and dig through my mailbox. Damnit, all those fashion spam of my daughter. Only crap today…. Hey, what’s that? A mail of my agent.
After I read the mail Tessa walked in and gave me some coffee. I closed my computer and walked to my car. A group of teens ran toward me and asked for a picture. “Sure guys”. I had a little conversation with them. I drove to my house when suddenly there came this news message on the radio: “Leicester City coach Claudio Ranieri had a heart attack on the trainings field” Horrible message. Instead of going home immediately I decided to have a drink on the museumplein. I parked my car and sat down on the terrace and asked the waitress for a drink. I looked around at the beautiful buildings in Amsterdam. On the right some Asian tourists took a picture with the I Amsterdam sign and on the left some teens sitting in the grass. Just when I wanted to drink my phone started to rang.
Me: Hello this is Frank
Bas: Good night Frank this is Bas, your agent
Me: Hey Bas how are you man!
Bas: I’m doing fine, listen, you have to come to my house as soon as possible
Me: What’s wrong
Bas: I’ll tell you everything when you’re here
Me: Tomorrow after the training?
Bas: No, I mean like tonight
Me: oh well, I’m going to try
Bas: No, you’re coming, I expect you in 30 minutes
Me: Alright then, see you
After I finished my drink I walked to my car and drove away. I was heading towards Amstelveen. After I parked my car I walked into the office of my agent. It was quite a big office with a lot of people walking through the hallway. *knock knock* Come in!
I walked into Bas’ office where he was calling with someone, “Wait a minute Frank, let me finish this call”. Bas is a guys with blonde short hair, he has to be around 40 and wears a black suit. He smokes a lot, that’s why he has a damaged skin and yellow teeth. Bas is a nice guy, always in for a drink and never gets angry.
Bas: Okay Frank, I’m done, so the reason why I called you is because we got an offer
Frank: An offer?
Bas: Yes, and in my opinion a great offer
Bas: Leicester called
Frank: Leicester city?
Frank: I see
Bas: Frank listen, Leicester is a great club, playing in the best competition of the world
Frank: Best of the world?
Bas: You know what I mean
Frank: Yeah I do
Frank: let’s do it
Bas: Wait what?
Frank: I’m done here, I’ve had 5 amazing years I will always love Ajax but I want another challenge
Bas: That’s quite a shock for me to be honest but Okay! Awesome I’ll inform you later! Would
you like some coffee?
Frank: I’d like a beer, what about celebrating this?
Bas: Great plan
