Riedewald played 93 times for the Ajax first team, leaving with one Eredivisie title to his name in 2014. He also featured for the young Ajax side that played in the UEFA Europa League final against Manchester United.

Riedewald has been capped for the Dutch national side three times, making his debut in 2015.
