Davy Klaassen Facts

  1. Davy started his youth career in 1999 when, as a 6-year-old, he joined the youth team of a local amateur club called HVV de Zebra’s. In 2003, he joined the youth team of HSV Wasmeer in his hometown of Hilversum.
  2. A year later, he was recruited by the famed Ajax Youth Academy based in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The organization manages youth teams (ages 7–18) and serves as the feeder line for AFC Ajax, one of the Netherlands’ ‘Big 3’ soccer clubs (the others being PSV Eindhoven and Feyenoord).
  3. In the 2011–12 season, representing the Ajax A1 youth squad, Davy won the national league title. He also helped the team reach the final of the NextGen Series (the UEFA (Union of European Football Associations) Champions League (the most prestigious club competition in European soccer) equivalent for under-19 teams).
  4. In 2014, for his performances in the 2013–14 season, he won the ‘Johan Cruyff Trophy’, an annual award presented to players aged under 21 who have produced exceptional performances in the Dutch soccer league system.
  5. In 2016, for his performances in the 2015–16 season, Davy won the ‘Dutch Footballer of the Year’ award. The award is determined by a poll of Dutch professional soccer players plying their trade in the top 2 divisions of the Dutch soccer league system.
  6. His nickname, Kaasstengel, was given to him due to his physical appearance. Kaasstengels/Kastengel/Kue Keju is a Dutch cheese snack in the shape of sticks. Kaas is the Dutch word for cheese while Stengel means stick.
  7. Another nickname of Davy’s is ‘Mister 1-0’ which refers to his tendency of often scoring the first goal of a match.
