The coach gave the youth player confidence and appeared at the end of the season 2010/2011 in the first team that won the league title. Ebecilio was rewarded with a new contract, but since then it went wrong with the young striker.
“He came in the first, we were champions and he got a new contract,” said De Boer in talks with NUsport. “Then I lost him. Not enough commitment. Others have frequently talked to him and I have three times seriously spoken to him.” In the season that followed became the player but his form was bad and lost his place.
Ebecilio came in the current season, not even in the plans of De Boer. “At the beginning of this season, I had the last serious conversation with Lorenzo. Then I said,” Well, next time when we sit here and we talk the same, then we shake hands and it’s: bye . ”
The 21-year-old striker was sold in the winter to the Ukrainian Metallurg Donetsk. Ebecilio came to 38 league games for Ajax, where he scored eight times.
