“With a whole analysis I would for a while, but if I briefly set out: on the day that I signed, fell Kasper Dolberg a time away. We have competitions that we (by the absence of Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, ed.) actually, not a striker. Frenkie de Jong fell into the crucial phase of the season, at the moment we have a lot of stability //back//,. We had so many injuries. These are the things that are not they were’nt,” said Ten Hag.

“And if you’re in the titelrace, in the months of march and april, all right. Again, the credits for PSV, that every time again – sometimes in a miraculous manner in the final stage – the points knew. That is mentally working at a opponent that are already on backlog. PSV is the rightful champion,” said Ten Hag.

That was the opperdoel and that we have reached. If Ajax wants to, of course, you always have the number one and that must and will strive.”
