INFO:

Suurbier made his debut for Ajax Amsterdam when he was 19 and played with them for 13 years, all throughout the most successful era until 1977 when he was 32 years old. Usually a right back, Suurbier was renowned for his pace and stamina. Suurbier was a big part of the 70's total football team the 'Twelve Apostles' of Ajax Amsterdam led by Johan Cruijff, which lifted the UEFA Champions League three times in a row. In 1977, he moved to Schalke 04 for one season. In 1979, he transferred to the Los Angeles Aztecs of the North American Soccer League. He played three seasons in Los Angeles before moving to the San Jose Earthquakes for the 1982 season. In the fall of 1982, the team was renamed the Golden Bay Earthquakes and entered the Major Indoor Soccer League. He retired at the end of the season to become an assistant coach with the Earthquakes. He later resumed his playing career as a player-coach of the Tampa Bay Rowdies in the American Indoor Soccer Association.

From what I have heard from my dad (big Ajax fan in the 70s, often in the stadium) Suurbier was on the ball (one of) the worst Ajax-players, but he made up for it with an amazing stamina, pace and determination.

I'd also give him a higher balance say 78- Suurbier was a hard player in that Dutch team as well as Ajax.

P01 – Overlapping Run: He was famous for his rushes over the right flank, often making it all the way to the goal-line for the cross.

i've just read a translated version of a dutch biography of suurbier that half joked he actually invented 'total football' because his crosses were so bad he included the crowd in the play when he blasted a ball into the stands :lol:
