Ajax lost seven key starters from last season, yet the club is thriving again in 2022 because of players like Brian Brobbey.
Whenever a squad loses its manager, top goal scorer, playmaker, and various key pieces it's typically not a recipe for success.
The Eredivisie champions are just built different though.
For years, Ajax has become a hub for youth talent, bringing big names into the sport that have gone on to many other massive European clubs.

Wesley Sneijder, Luis Suarez, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic were just a few players that shined for Ajax back in the day.
More recently, Antony, Frenkie de Jong, and Mathijs de Ligt have been sold for big bucks and that money has been reinvested in the club.
This season, the Dutch side is off to a perfect start both in domestic and European competition, and Brobbey has been a huge figure in that equation. The 20-year-old spent last season on loan at RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga but was never really afforded a chance in their attack.
