Ajax Adidas Kit Prank: Players React In Horror (VIDEO)

Ajax coach Frank de Boer and his players Siem de Jong, Daley Blind and Jasper Cillessen were given a fright when they were shown mock designs for Ajax's new kit.

The players were shown shirt ideas featured a lion and "typical Dutch imagery" including pancakes, tulips and bicycles.

Speaking in English, Cillessen said: "It's too much for me. I don't like it." De Jong described one as "really bad" while De Boer worried the team wouldn't "be taken seriously".

However, their fears were allayed when a camera crew burst in, administering the punchline.
