In a statement released on Saturday, Ajax said Gesser and his brother were killed in the crash.
“There will be a minute of silence before the start of the matches and Ajax players will wear armbands in mourning for Gesser’s death. In addition, flags will be half-masted at the Toekomst sports complex.
“Ajax are deeply moved by this tragic event. The club wish those close to Gesser strength in the times to come to cope with this immeasurable loss.”
