Ten Hag about changes discussed by Sneijder and Kuyt: If you dont get that…

Ajax trainer Erik ten Hag saw his team face a 1-0 backlog against Borussia Dortmund for a long time and changed twice: Davy Klaassen came halfway for Edson รlvarez, a little later Mohammed Kudus was brought as a replacement for Steven Berghuis. Analysts Wesley Sneijder and Dirk Kuyt frowned their eyebrows and Ten Hag did not understand that.
The trainer was confronted with the findings of Sneijder and Kuyt in conversation with RTL 7. โ€œThey didn‘t understand? If you don’t understand that… โ€œsaid Ten Hag, who then explained the รlvarez-Klaassen exchange. โ€œWe needed possession there, and we needed more offensive power there. We‘re in excess, so I’ll bring Klaassen there. And then I bring a player who is good at the ball and can divide the game, Gravenberch, into control of the midfield, who can rule there.โ€
Just after Kudus‘s entrance, Ajax reversed his 1-0 backlog into a 1-3 victory. โ€œBerghuis certainly didn’t do badly, but Kudus is stuck and can create something. I thought it would be desirable to bring some fresh energy. I think it paid out.โ€
