The frivolous AZ frolicked across the field and played as if it were already leading 4-0. However, the second goal was delayed for a long time and now and then Sparta was really dangerous in the counter.
After the break, AZ succeeded a lot less, although substitute Dani de Wit shot in the redeeming 2-0. In the sequel, Sparta tried a bit, but the AZ defense was closed. With the victory, AZ takes the initiative in the battle for second place. PSV has three points less and will play at VVV-Venlo on Sunday.
Clasie and AZ talk about new contract
For Clasie, his starting place and goal comes at a good time. He says he did not suffer from the gambling incident. “That has been,” he says.
Clasie has thought about his perspective in Alkmaar. The 29-year-old midfielder’s contract expires this summer. Afterwards, he confesses to be talking to the NOS about a longer stay. “In the coming weeks I will think with my family and we will make a decision,” said Clasie.
“Jordy has proven his worth for AZ”, says trainer Pascal Jansen. “Then it makes sense that you talk about the future.”
Watch the reactions of Jordy Clasie, Pascal Jansen and Sparta coach Henk Fraser below.
