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."

Sparta got back into the thick of it ten minutes after half time, with a goal from Camiel Neghli. "There was a little less energy in the second half, we had less control over things," said Van 't Schip. “Sparta also played well, although they didn't really create any big opportunities. We had opportunities too, but I felt we were too quick to lose the ball in the second half."

Substitutes went on for Brian Brobbey, Steven Bergwijn and Kristian Hlynsson in the match against Sparta. Van 't Schip explained these decisions to the cameras. "Brian of course was already having problems with his hamstring, and Steven also had some issues too. But for Kristian (Hlynsson, ed.) the tank simply ran dry."

Ajax takes a stand against social hate

Every month, players of Ajax Men’s and Women’s teams receive over 1,500 hate messages on social media. But sadly it’s not just our players. These types of messages are part of a growing trend that impact millions of people online. In an effort to silence social hate, Ajax will wear a jersey with three white dots instead of names during their matches this weekend. The dots represent the universal sign for silence, as well as the menu icon you select to report hate messages and associated accounts.
