Ten Hag: ‘At the moment I say that, I also say: should not be a changeover’

Ajax trainer Erik ten Hag knows what Ajax should pay most attention to in the away game against Borussia Dortmund. The final manager has pressed his players to the heart not to allow it to come to a changeover match.
Ten Hag calls the changeover in conversation with RTL7 incredibly important. โ€œThey will definitely play on that. At the same time I say that, I also say: it should not be a switch match. Because then they are in their strength. And we are no less in our strength, but our strength is still: having a rest at the ball.โ€
That opponent Dortmund seems to have switched to a three-defender system, Ten Hag doesnt say much, he says when he talks to Ziggo Sport. โ€œTactics are sometimes overrated, it is mainly about the bravery you play with, awareness at the ball,โ€ says the Ajax trainer, who at least does not want to wait and see how Dortmund tackles it. โ€œNo, then youll be overruled. And we want to take control here.โ€
Borussia Dortmund and Ajax kick off Wednesday at 9pm at the Signal Iduna Park, knowing that the previous mutual meeting in Amsterdam ended in 4-0. With a win, Ajax is already sure of Champions League wintering: if the result of Sporting Portugal-Besiktas is favourable, Ajax could even seize place one in the pool.
