However, he returned to the Netherlands for personal reasons on 14 October 2021. Mohamed ended his experience at Sampdoria with only one bench appearance and he was never fielded onto the pitch.


Additionally, it was reported that Ihattaren was working on his fitness with Gerald Vanenburg to facilitate re-entry into professional football on 12 January 2022. However, it was confirmed that Ajax had loaned him from Juventus for one year with an option to buy a set at €2 million. Later, on 11 March, after still having not made his debut for the club, manager Erik ten Hag expressed his disappointment with Ihattaren’s physical improvement in recent weeks.

Nonetheless, he first appeared for Jong Ajax, AFC Ajax’s youth team competing in the Eerste Divisie league on 1 April. Then, three days later, Ihattaren played his first game with Jong Ajax as a starter and scored a goal against TOP Oss.
