Ajax captain Dusan Tadic has been knocked out of the field after the unnecessary defeat against AS Roma (1-2). Ajax got plenty of opportunities, but paid a high price for his missed penalty and blunder by Kjell Scherpen.
“We were much better”, Tadic sighs for ESPNs camera. “We get plenty of chances and I have to make the penalty, but then itll be 1-1… After that, we get even more chances, we do not score and it becomes 2-1 from a corner. Yeah, its incredible. We deserve a lot more.”
Penalty specialist Tadic missed himself from the dot. “I wanted to shoot the ball high in the middle. Normally goalkeepers dont wait, but I just have to make the 2-0.” The blunder of Scherpen was also mentioned. The Ajax captain didnt lose his goalkeeper. “Things like this happen. Hes a great boy and a good goalkeeper. He needs to keep his head up. If we just finish our chances, its no problem.”
“Do I still have faith in the return? Yes, of course. Today Roma was lucky, but this is football,” concludes Tadic.
