Football fans all ask 'why is Jimmy Bullard in goal?' as Ajax take on Liverpool in Champions League | The Sun

FOOTBALL fans were left stunned after seeing Ajax goalkeeper Remko Pasveer in action against Liverpool this evening.

The Dutchman has started every game for the Amsterdam outfit this season.

But supporters were still taken aback when Pasveer pulled off an excellent save to deny a Virgil van Dijk bullet header in the first-half.

The cameras zoomed in on Pasveer after the stop, showing his entirely grey head of hair tied back in a bun up close.

Fans were all immediately left wondering just how old the Ajax stopper was.

And luckily BT Sport commentator Darren Fletcher cleared things up straight away.

Fletcher immediately pointed out that Pasveer is 38 – double the age of Liverpool teenager Harvey Elliott.

Social media was quick to react after seeing Pasveer and his luscious grey locks.

And many thought he was a dead ringer for former Hull and Fulham star Jimmy Bullard, who has recently been starring on Celebrity Masterchef.

One wrote on Twitter: "Why have Ajax got Jimmy Bullard in goal?"

Another joked: "Jimmy Bullard on fire in the Ajax net tonight!"

Another said: "Jimmy Bullard having an unreal game at Anfield."

“Is it just me or does the Ajax keeper look like Jimmy Bullard? Can’t unsee it,” another wrote.

Other fans pointed out the keeper's age, saying: "Ajax's keeper looks about 50 years old."

While another said: "Yeah this Ajax keeper looks like he should be riding a dragon on Game of Thrones."

And a third wrote: "This ajax keeper is pushing 40 and he’s making these kind of saves."

Although those thinking Pasveer was no spring chicken were shown the error of their ways after the stunning save.

The goalie was called into action again just before the break – and again he responded with an expert double save to deny Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Mohamed Salah did manage to get one past Pasveer in the 17th minute to open the scoring.

Ajax then hit back just before the half-hour mark through a stunning strike from young Ghanian talent Mohammed Kudus.

But Joel Matip popped up with an 89th minute header to claim a valuable three points for Liverpool.
