"Sour." That’s how Jurriën Timber described his side’s elimination in the quarter finals of the UEFA Europa League against AS Roma. "We know we went out unnecessarily. We gave them very little and our pressure was good. We should have finished our chances."

The center-back was frustrated, feeling that  Ajax was the better team over the two matches, but was left empty-handed. "This is not good, of course. You see that AS Roma get one chance and immediately score a goal. That's the difference."

In the second half Ajax did manage to score quickly via the substitute Brian Brobbey. "He brings energy and strength. The defenders are almost afraid of him. He radiates that,” Timber noted, full of praise for his teammate.

Looking forward to Sunday
After the game, the focus was immediately shifted to Sunday. Ajax have a chance to wint the KNVP Cup if they can overcome Vitesse. "We have to switch our attention. Not yet today, but tomorrow it will really be switched", Timber said in conclusion.
