Yakubu will end up being a world class player. He will join Paris Saint Germain then join a team in england and by the way he is from Ghana making him ghanian

I live in England and have seen Yakubu a couple of times in action on television. He is a phenomenally rounded player. And has the qualities to reach the level of Zidane or Figo. I'm not sure what nationality he is but he is definitely World Cup material. I am looking forward to seeing him on the international stage soon.

Yakubu in my opinion is a great example of how wonderful the Ajax youth system is. If players like Yakubu, van der (Vaart)(Gun)(Meyde) come out of this system Ajax will be a world power in years to come. He is a great defensive midfield holder, ball winner who is certainly in the Aron Winter mould. It will certainly be a joy to watch this player rise towards bigger a better things in many years. May need to work on his aggresive temperament, but his firey spirit cannot be denied. Marital status: still looking!!!!! Watta boy!

This is interesting...

Almost every newspaper and Ajax news source announced that Abubakari Yakubu is suspended for Wednesday's Amstel Cup game against PSV on Wednesday, due to his double yellow card against FC Groningen. However, the guys of Ajax' new independent fanzine Dapp're Strijders checked the KNVB regulations, which said that a double yellow card means that the player is automatically suspended for the next league game. They sent email to the KNVB. Today, the reply is on the Dapp're Strijders website: Yakubu is not suspended for the PSV game, but for the first league game, at Sparta...

Seriously: almost no-one noticed this. I wonder whether Ajax knows. Maybe they'll keep Yakubu sidelined against PSV, thinking he's suspended...

Speaking of co-incidences, you're probably right about Yakubu. But I too, cannot help but notice the team has lost some of its chemistry since Zlatan was suspended for his stupid stunt. The midfield of O'Brien, Galasek & vd Vaart is also suspect, in my opinion. You either need JOB or Galasek on the starting 11, not both. I personally would have preferred Knopper. But hey, aren't we all expert managers ?

Yakubu got injured in the match against Willem II. Ajax didn't win any match ever since! Is it too easy and simple to see a correlation between these two facts? One thing is for sure: Galásek didn't convince me so far.
Anyhow: against NAC Yakubu was on the bench again and hopefully he will play next match against psv. This team needs a passionated player like him at the moment.

First of all, it`s great to see Ajax has fans so far away from Amsterdam. Abubakari Yakubu is in my opinion one the greatest talents Ajax ever had. (and they had a few) In a couple of years I can assure you that all the large clubs in Italy, Spain and England wish they bought Yakubu when he was young. Me and a couple of friends are starting up a Yakubu fanclub right now. Keep an eye on the official Ajax site, we`ll be linked there in a couple of months.
