A talent a day, Olaf Gorter: a Dutch midfielder at the service of Lecce

Lecce announced yesterday the latest exotic signing of its summer, the Dutchman Olaf Gortercoming from Ajax. Gorter is a defensive midfielder, known for his ability to read the game and break up the opposition’s moves. He is skilled in ball recovery and defensive positioning, managing to effectively protect the defensive line. Despite his young age, he demonstrates a remarkable tactical maturity, which makes him a valuable element for his team: a young van Bommel for example, a natural balancer.

The carreer
He began his career in the youth teams of Ajax II, where he demonstrated his technical and tactical skills, playing mainly as a midfielder. In the 2023/2024 season he accumulated 21 appearances for Ajax II, totaling 740 minutes of play. He also made four appearances in the Youth League to embellish his palmares, although during his time with the lancers he never managed to get close to making his debut for the First Team. Although he did not score any goals, he contributed significantly to the team thanks to his vision of the game and his defensive skills.
