Next Sunday, Ajax PSV will receive in the Johan Cruijff ArenA. The Amsterdammers are ten points behind the leader of the Eredivisie and a good result is necessary to keep track of the country title. The cracker between the two top clubs is headed by Kevin Blom on Sunday.
Referee coordinator Dick van Egmond explains:”We have six classics to distribute and we can’t give all the toppers to Björn Kuipers and Danny Makkelie. The other international arbitrators can do the same, and the new A-listed arbitrators must also do the same when they are ready,”says Football International.
After FC Emmen – MVV Maastricht last week Blom led NAC Breda against Excelsior last Sunday. Kuipers was in charge of PSV – Feyenoord and Makkelie early this season and was in charge of Feyenoord – Ajax. Blom knocked Ajax out this season at Heracles Almelo and at home against Sparta Rotterdam and led one match of Philip Cocu’s team with SC Heerenveen – PSV.
