Ten Hag was very pleased, not only with the final score but also Ajax's performance. "Especially in these conditions", said the coach, referring to the strong winds.
"We hit the post three times, we had plenty of one-on-one chances and we didn't give away many opportunities to our opponents, so I'm pretty pleased."
