Watch .. A wonderful gesture in the Netherlands Cup towards a player with cancer
In the final price of the Dutch Football Cup, the players of Ajax and its guest Excelsior came out to support David Blanc, the latter’s player, who is currently receiving chemotherapy for bone cancer (splinter).
And when the result indicated that Ajax had advanced by 9 clean goals, Blanc was involved by the Excelsior coach in the 88th minute, and suddenly the game stopped and the players of the two teams lined up, both at home and away, to create a corridor of honor when entering the field.
Beautiful things that football gives you.🥺

Regardless of the crushing result, it was great to see the other side of the world’s number one popular game getting the attention it deserves, and for sure Blanc’s reception was touching from his teammates and opponents.
