Ajax coach Erik Ten Hague admitted at a news conference ahead of the Tottenham semi-finals of the Champions League semi-final that no one could predict the progress of any of the Dutch teams among the continent's top four before the season. Ten Hague also responded to complaints from the London camp on a timeline that did not go hand in hand before Tuesday's count.
Ajax European Ajax has driven through almost all major football capitals of the former continent this season. After the Dutch have very good resistance to Bayern in both group games, they are resident Erika Ten Hagain extraordinary battles still increased their level and after defending the last three titles and the 13-time Real Madrid championship eliminated Juventus, who had Cristiano Ronaldoagain they should have plans in a battle for a tide bay with big ears.
"If we live a dream? Yes, of course, we want to continue this curve"said to ten Hague on Tuesday at the Tottenham Stadium on Tuesday. "It is, of course, exceptional that we are in the Champions League semi-finals, and no one could have predicted that at the start of the season for the Dutch team to finish in the Champions League semi-finals. , I think this is simply a wonderful experience. "he continued.
& # 39; We do not rest on our laurels alone & # 39;
"It's a big deal for you, it's a big deal for you, you can add that to your armaments, I think that's the motto of our team, we've already got something, but we want to do a lot more … just on our laurels. we want to improve every day and every day we need to improve even more "says a 49-year-old strategist.
A lot of dust, at least in the UK, lifted the fact that Ajax was the leader of the Dutch Eredivisie and this time they went hand in hand and did the league test and allowed a week's rest before they received in London. The Dutch giant still struggles on all fronts, in the championship with PSV Eindhoven title defense, and in the cup, the last bribe will be disputed with the Willem II team.
Is it also unfair to share TV rights gains?
"We have played in the Dutch Eredivisie, we have ten million Euros (Euros) that we get from TV rights, Tottenham gets … Well, I do not know how much they get, but they get a lot more It's still unfair It's unfair to them or to us These are the circumstances: Everyone is different You just have to deal with them It's what we do and then "It's a ball for a colleague. Maurice Pochetino, who recently mentioned much of his clients' fatigue compared to the Dutch, returned to Ten Hague.
At the moment, he was working with the media with a media player Donny van de Beek, who also played in a longer rest, in which he, thanks to the understanding of the leadership of the national championship, could seize the last few days.
"Well, I always like to play a lot of games, but I think it's very good, at the moment, that we have a week's rest, but we'll see how good we play tomorrow, but I think it's always good to rest a little. a bad thing, but playing many games is also very well prepared. "said the 22-year-old.
