Ajax is praised to heaven after the matches against Borussia Dortmund, but Marco van Basten kicks the brakes. He doesnt think Ajax is able to win the Champions League, which is now called left and right.
Van Basten is asked at Rondo whether Ajax can win the Champions League. “I think that all goes way too far,” he responds. “You think of clubs like Bayern Munich or Liverpool. I think Ajax is still too small for that, but I can be wrong.”
It is also sometimes called that todays Ajax is better than the Ajax that made it to the semi-final of the Champions League in 2019. “I dont think that either. They then had Matthijs de Ligt, Frenkie de Jong, Hakim Ziyech and Donny van de Beek. I dont see that in this team yet. You really need quality, too,” says Van Basten.
🇪🇺🏆 @AFCAjax is once again working on an impressive campaign in the Champions League. Are Amsterdammers better now than in the success year 2018-19? @MarcoVanBasten doesnt think so! #RONDO #ZiggoSport pic.twitter.com/LlD3IXwyP8
