Ajax have confirmed the death of talented youth player Noah Gesser after a car crash in the Netherlands.
Gesser, 16, was travelling with his 18-year-old brother when their vehicle collided with a taxi in Utrecht, the Eredivisie club have confirmed.
The Police have not released the identities of the two who tragically lost their life but did say they were from IJsselstein and part of the same family.
