We recently announced a collaboration with the world-famous football club Ajax from Amsterdam to provide the players with fascinating discoveries about their family history. We are excited to be able to share their MyHeritage DNA results now!

Daley Blind, Joël Veltman, Dušan Tadić, and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar did a MyHeritage DNA test to find out more about their ethnic roots and where their ancestors come from. Their eagerly awaited results have certainly delivered some surprises!

View the reactions and results of the players in this video:

Daley Blind

Daley Blind spent part of his football career playing for England. It turns out that he has a whopping 61.4% of English DNA. He was also very surprised to learn that his result also shows some African DNA.
