Gesser, who was acting as a center forward, got his start in football as a player for the modest Alphense Boys in the small town of Alphen aan den Rijn. In 2018, Ajax recruited him to their quarry, and this last season he had participated in the U17 team. He did not have the opportunity to debut with the first team.
“Ajax are deeply shocked by this tragic event”
Police reported that two passengers were killed in a car that collided head-on with a taxi bus in the suburb of Ijsselstein, in the Dutch city of Utrecht, Gesser’s hometown. The taxi driver survived. The expressions of support for the player’s family multiplied moments after the fateful news was known.
“Ajax are deeply shocked by this tragic event,” the club said on its website. “We wish those close to Gesser all the strength to process this immeasurable loss,” added the Amsterdam entity, which in a few years has suffered two tragedies related to two of its homegrown players.
