AZ Alkmaar renews Sem Dekkers’ contract

AZ Alkmaar have announced Sem Dekkers’ contract renewal. The young right-back’s new contract will run until the end of the 2025/26 season.

At just 19 years old, Sem Dekkers is seen as one of the promises of the Alkmaar club for the coming seasons. Last season he was present in the U21 squad of AZ Alkmaar.

In the Keuken Kampioen Divisie, for Jong AZ Alkmaar, he played 18 games and scored just one goal. He was part of the AZ Alkmaar squad that won the 2022/23 UEFA Champions League U20.

In December last year, Pascal Jansen added Sem Dekkers to the squad that traveled to Spain to train with the AZ Alkmaar first team.

“I had an excellent season with AZ Alkmaar. I played in all competitions and had the pleasure of winning the U20 Champions League. I managed to show good football and I’m sure that with this performance and focus, I’ll arrive as soon as possible in the professional team. I am very grateful for the confidence that AZ Alkmaar continues to place in my work,” said Sem Dekkers.

  1. Watched the U21 final , very physical game and again it amazes me of modern day era football compared to seeing how the Dutch played. The Dutch simply can’t play in the middle of the park and are consistently doing lateral and back passing which has became a eye saw and trade mark.

    I think this will be a challenge for the Dutch, if they really want to push and win any tournament.

    As per the game, IMO Spain were a better team, a deflected goal and England did enough to protect the goal and won.

  2. Another young dutch striker Emanuel Emegha is now catching the eyes of many teans. The 20 year old striker has scored 10 goals amd 2 assists for sturm graz in Austrian league. Seems to be another promising player for Netherlands. Hope they all make the right moves.
