Arsenal Women manager stunned by Ajax: ‘Never experienced before’

Special scenes at De Toekomst, Wednesday evening: Jonas Eidevall, manager of Arsenal‘s women’s team, found out that the goals at Ajax are ten centimetres too small.
It was a strange experience coming here, playing against a big club like Ajax, having to measure the goals and finding out that they were ten centimetres too small. I‘ve never experienced anything like it before, says Eidevall at the press conference afterwards. But we only have an influence on the things that we have an influence on. Arsenal reached the group phase of the Champions League at the expense of Ajax Women. After a 2-2 draw in London, Vivianne Miedema made the only hit of the game.
The Swedish manager acknowledges that his team did not play big. I was most disappointed with the many chances we gave away in the first game, he says. Ajax is a good team that plays aggressively. Last week, we weren’
t at the required defensively level, but we were much better today.
