De Zeeuw about Ajax departure: ‘Eggs for my money’

Demy de Zeeuw decided to leave Ajax in the summer of 2011, because he felt that he was no longer fully fit. After he got a kick in the face of Uruguayan Martín Cáceres in the semi-finals at the 2010 World Cup, De Zeeuw, as a footballer, says he never became the old one again.

“After I got that kick in the World Cup semi-finals, I started to wonder what I could do after my football career. I felt that I was no longer as good as for that shovel. That is also the reason that I chose eggs for my money at Ajax and left for Russia, instead of fighting for a nice, sporty career, “De Zeeuw tells in conversation with business magazine Quote.

The midfielder left after winning the thirtieth league title with Ajax to the Russian Spartak Moscow, because he therefore felt that he would never reach his old level again. “I knew I wouldn’t be able to do that anymore, because I felt that I was no longer as fit, sharp and fast as before that kick. As a result, I started to look at life differently and made different choices. Then I started to study entrepreneurship much more. “

Already during his football career, De Zeeuw then successfully starts doing business. In 2020 this results in the former Ajax player as owner of Balr, 433 and Wannahaves has acquired a place in the ‘Quote Selfmadelijst’, a list consisting of one hundred Dutch millionaires who earn millions of euros on their own and before their fortieth year.

De Zeeuw explains his role within his companies Balr, 433 and Wannahaves is. “I do most of the creative things and collaborations with other companies or individuals. I quickly know what is going on on social media and I try to get that reflected in the company. Of course, it’s all about numbers, but numbers don’t always say everything. Sometimes creativity, even if it costs money, is very good for a brand, “the former midfielder concludes.
