Chivu was voted player of the year in Holland by a leading footballmagazine :)
He finished one point ahead of Alfred Schreuder (NAC)

He's going for the treble!! (Championship, Cup and player of the year)

thanks for pointing this out :)


He is our pride! He is God's gift for us :)

I see that you have a photo of him as your avatar.

If you want, I can translate you some interviews with him in several Romanian newspapers. In the meanwhile, check the thread "Interviews" ...

that won't be neccesary LL, I've already read so much interviews and the most of the time he says the same so.. :)

I have an avatar of him because he's the captain and the captain is the first to get the trophy :) Furthmore, he was the best player and main factor of the championship.

It would be a true honour for Chivu to get the Dutch Cup as well in his first year as Captain. I hope Chivu stays one more year with Ajax to play in the Champions League to gain experience before moving to a huge market team.

You guys must be proud to have Cristian and I'm sure he respects the Ajax system for teaching him how to play pro football.

I'm proud we have him, our scouting system found another superstar.

I also hope he stays for (at least) one more year, he can use the experience and will become better off it. Another year with Koeman and Krol will help him in his career in the top regions of World football.

Yeah Ajax DOES have an excellent scouting system. Good to see Ajax with the championship again and good to see a Romanian such a big part of it.

Chivu expects tears of joy after Dutch award

Wednesday 8th May 2002

Ajax captain Cristian Chivu could hardly contain himself after being voted Dutch league Player of the Year. "I'm not sure whether my mum can avoid crying when I tell her about this," said the Romania defender, who beat NAC midfielder Alfred Schreuder to top spot.

The defender beat second-placed Schreuder by a mere point to win the Golden Boot competition, which is organised by Voetbal International and De Telegraaf.

Heerenveen striker Marcus Allback and Utrecht forward Dirk Kuijt shared third position.

Chivu, meanwhile, was delighted with the award and said: "I immediately phoned my mother in Romania after we had won the title and she couldn't hold back her tears then," Chivu told De Telegraaf. "There might be more of the same now," he added.

"And this is an another big prize for me," he added. "And hopefully we will win the double when we take on Utrecht in the Dutch Cup final on Sunday."

The defender, who was handed the captaincy when new coach Ronald Koeman arrived last December, succeeds PSV midfielder Johann Vogel as the best player in the country.

Chivu will collect his trophy during a gala night on September 2 and will be joined by team-mate Rafael van der Vaart, who beat Feyenoord star Robin van Persie and Ajax forward Mido to Young Player of The Year despite being sidelined with a knee injury since the beginning of February.

I hope next seasons Ajax have Lobont as their starting goalie. If this happens I think Lobont will be our #1 goalie for good. I'm soooo sick and bored of Stelea!

I still think that Dolha is more talented and better for us ... then, who knows, maybe we can use also Hutan. It's good that we have competition in our team.

Competetion is great, I have faith in Dolha as well, but I think Lobont is more mature for the job therefore he should be given the first shot at #1. Dolha has plenty of time, just wait until he moves to a decent club like Dynamo Kiev...

Dolha is surely more talented and younger then both Stelea and Lobont. To bad he got seek. You know, his deseese is called in Romanian "inflamarea radacinilor nervoase". A more advanced position of the dessese could've been Parkinson (like Cassus Clay has) !

BUT I HAVE GREAT NEWS !! In the cup game with Astra Dolha was on the bench wearing his equipment, ready to enter on the field when the team needs him !

I never knew Dolha was sick! ? But if he's back on the bench he's close to coming back again :)

I've seen Dolha in the Italy U-21 VS Romania U-21 game that ended 1-1 with a goal from Niculae for us :)


Dolha has great reaction, he is very confident ( a MUST for a goalie!), he is smart, he can predict what the players will do and he is tall. He's got all the qualities to become a very good goalkeeper.

Van der Vaart??? No, man.Chivu has been the "soul" of the team and ,in my opinion, he has been the best.
Van der Vaart is a very good player...but Chivu is Chivu,and our Romanian is in a higher level.

So,it has been right his trophie :)


:( ;) :mad: HAI ROMANIA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I tought that Van der Vaart was to be named Player of the Year.
He has 14 goals and he's winger :eek:.
1. he's not a winger, he's a midfielder left/centre :)

2. Van der Vaart was out since february and to decide who should the player of the year, they gave every player who played more than 45 minutes in a match a rating from 1-10. They took the 30 highest scores of every player and looked who had the most points. Chivu ended up with one point more than Alfred Schreuder.
