Ten Hag: 'Klaassen's opportunity sums up our whole Champions League season'

Erik ten Hag expressed his frustration about the result against Atalanta (0-1) and was especially disappointed by a moment during the game's 75th minute. "That was our best chance of the game, at 0-0. It could have made all the difference, but it's just a real shame. Davy Klaassen's opportunity really sums up and it almost a metaphor for our whole season. We weren't able to make the most of great opportunities."
