Ten Hag honors deceased Bruins Slot during title feast: “Was a difficult moment”

After the championship match against FC Emmen, Ajax trainer Erik ten Hag took note of the death of Tonny Bruins Slot. The acclaimed scout analyst died in early November at the age of 73, but remained involved with Ajax until just before his death.
The Amsterdammers played against Atalanta Bergamo one week before the death of Bruins Slot and received advice about the opponent before that match. Six months after his death, there was a portrait of Bruins Slot on the grass of the Johan Cruijff Arena, where Ten Hag put down a championship shirt. We wanted to honor him in this way. He lost us during this season, which was a difficult moment, he said at the press conference afterwards. Tonny was a giant, as a human being. But as an analyst, he was of an extremely high level.
Because of the corona measures Ten Hag could not personally say goodbye to Bruins Slot and he could not go to the funeral. Thats why we wanted to bring him this tribute to him. Marc (Overmars, red.), on behalf of the club, Pieter (Morel, red.), because as a video analyst he was most connected with Tonny, and I on behalf of the technical staff. Of course as head coach, but also on behalf of all the main trainers, in which he has made a big contribution, I think. From Johan Cruijff to Ronald Koeman and Peter Bosz and Frank de Boer.
