Ten Hag sees ‘extraordinary development’ in handful of Ajax players: ‘High level’

The Europa League elimination of Ajax is particularly annoying, says Erik ten Hag. The trainer states that his team has dominated two matches against AS Roma.
โ€œYes, we have dominated the opponent twice, but still we are out,โ€ Ten Hag responds in front of ESPNs camera. โ€œOf course, that gives an annoying feeling. But we can also be proud of the way we entered these two games and how we actually dominated the opponent.โ€
The big problem, according to Ten Hag: missing the many opportunities. โ€œWe have created a lot, but have not been effective enough. In the final phase, you should also have a little luck, but we didn
t. It was too hectic from our side.โ€
Ten Hag concludes with a positive note. โ€œIm proud of our game level. We are really in the right direction, as a team and as an individual. There are players who develop extremely well and reach a very high level. Then it is particularly annoying that you are not allowed to play the semifinals. We would have liked to have measured ourselves with Manchester United.โ€
