Schreuder Interview 1280

Alfred Schreuder and Jurriën Timber have mixed feelings looking back at the match against Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League. Ajax had a single point in their sights for quite some time at Anfield, but fell down in the final stages. "Which is a pity, of course."

Schreuder was able to reconcile the outcome at Anfield fairly quickly. "It's always a shame when it happens so late in the day. But I can't say it wasn't deserved. They played ten more corners than we did, and also had more shots on target. We actually score from corners quite regularly, and it's also one of Liverpool's strong points."

Timber spoke of a match that was 'out of the ordinary' for Ajax. "I don't think we're used to having to defend so much. In that respect, full marks to the team," said the defender, who felt that overall Ajax was 'not sufficiently prepared'. "Their previous game wasn't great, but you knew they were back home playing at Anfield. It just wasn't good enough on our part."

'High risk'
Schreuder didn't feel that Ajax was surprised at the constant pressure from Liverpool. "No, you know they always play like that at home. You are dealing with a top-ranking team giving us a good run for our money. What's more, while taking a lot of risks, which you don't see that often. Being a football team ourselves, we knew they would take certain risks."

Timber was understandably disappointed, but was keen not to let it get him down for long. "We have to learn from this, take it on board and move on."
