The 52-year-old coach thought that Ajax controlled the match. "We didn't allow AZ almost a single chance. That says a lot. They have a good team. We were able to impose our will on them in major phases of the game. However, there are always points for improvement. You have to, especially in this phase of the season, go the extra mile.”
The win means Ajax qualify for the final in Rotterdam at the Kuip against PSV. "It is a beautiful match on paper in a full Kuip. That is a great experience every time. We are, of course, all looking forward to that."
"We are going back to Amsterdam with a sense of satisfaction," the trainer continues. "But too much contentment leads to laziness. We have to watch out for that. We have to be on our toes again on Sunday."
