"We made a mistake and then made things difficult for ourselves. Then we played very well for a bit, but we made another mistake in the build-up. Then we lost our energy. That should not happen. If the players do what they have to, then the opponent won't be able to counterattack.”

In the end Ajax, overcame a deficit twice. Especially in the closing stages of the match, Ajax were the dominant side. "In the last 30, 35 minutes we completely outplayed Feyenoord. The players who were on the pitch had the spirit."

"Davy Klaassen and Nico Tagliafico gave the right impulse", he gave the substitutes a pat on the back. "We also changed tactically. In the first half we were not good with the ball. Then I brought Ryan Gravenberch to the back. We also started playing with three in the back. Feyenoord had a lot of trouble with that. They didn't get there. more on."
