Analyst accuses star who left Spurs in the summer of being ‘erratic’ 

Steven Bergwijn has come under criticism for his lack of consistency since his move from Tottenham to Ajax in the summer.

Bergwijn did produce some memorable moments in a Tottenham shirt during his two-and-a-half-year stint at the club, but those moments were few and far between.

The 24-year-old struggled for game time, particularly after Antonio Conte arrived at Spurs in the November of last year, and it did not come as a surprise when the winger joined Ajax in a deal worth €31.25m (£26.8m) this summer.

The Netherlands international has made a decent start to life back at Amsterdam, netting ten times across all competitions so far (Transfermarkt).

Seven of those goals have come in the Dutch league, with the former Spurs man now sitting in joint fourth place in the race for the Eredivisie Golden Boot.

However, Dutch analyst Win Kieft believes that Bergwijn is plagued by the same sort of inconsistency he showed during his time at PSV Eindhoven.

He told Ajax Showtime (28/10/22 via Sport Witness): “What is a real reinforcement? So far, I don’t think one player is really a reinforcement.

“I also have to tell you honestly that Bergwijn, after a pretty good start in the league, is again a bit the erratic player he already was at PSV.

“By the way, he is not that way in the Dutch national team, where he does play with flair.”

After starting the season on fire, the goals have dried up a bit for Bergwijn over the last month and a half. However, I would not be surprised if the Dutchman ends the season very close to the top of the goal scoring charts as he is too good for the Eredivisie.
