Van 't Schip: 'Should have taken advantage of more opportunities'

John van 't Schip appeared before the cameras after winning 2-1 against Sparta. The manager was delighted with the victory, but also felt the Ajax team lacked focus in front of the goal. "We missed a number of opportunities in the first half. I saw some attacks where we got it together inside the box but failed to score. Had we done so, we might have gone into half time with a stronger lead. The goals we did score were good, but we should have taken advantage of a few more opportunities."
