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.
“Yes, we have dominated the opponent twice, but still we are out,” Ten Hag responds in front of ESPNs camera. “Of 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.”
The big problem, according to Ten Hag: missing the many opportunities. “We have created a lot, but have not been effective enough. In the final phase, you should also have a little luck, but we didnt. It was too hectic from our side.”
Ten Hag concludes with a positive note. “Im 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.”
