Jong Ajax lost Tuesday night after a crazy final phase of FC Volendam. The Amsterdammers entered the injury time of the race with a 1-2 head start, but eventually lost with 3-2. Youri Regeer was the schlemile on Ajax side: he made the mistake of winning Volendam.
Regeer left the field in tears after the last whistle, but then reports in front of ESPN‘s camera. “Yes, I’m making a mistake… That‘s where the 3-2 comes out. That’s personal, a very stupid mistake,” begins the Jong Ajax captain.
Reg says he didn‘t apologize afterwards in the locker room. When asked what he said to his teammates, he is clear. “Nothing really. I guess it wasn’t necessary either. Everyone knew it was my fault. It‘s gonna have to get through, but I know damn well it’s my fault. You give it away. 2-2 can happen, but then make such a terrible mistake in the last few seconds. That ball just needs to move forward”, he closes.
