The coach of Ajax, had a little laugh at the statements of his colleague, Mauricio Pochettino, that it is unfair that Ajax rest got a week to prepare for the duel in London. ,,I can not so much", said Ten Hag. “We get 10 million euros of tv money. The Spurs 200 million euros. Is that fair?”
Tottenham Hotspur fog in the thuisduel with Ajax, the much-feared strikers Harry Kane and Son Heung-min. Also Harry Winks, Erik Lamela and Serge Aurier are for the time being not usable. According to Pochettino, therefore, is not his team, but Ajax is favourite for a place in the final.
“I go there, no energy to waste", responded At the Hag. “We want it on the field. This is more difficult than against Real and Juventus. But we have now come so far that we also want more. We have grown this season. Only we are sometimes not effective enough with rounding. At home against Real and against Juventus we had a lot more to score. If we can still be sharpened, then we are quite difficult to beat."
