Trainer Erik ten Hag has good hope that he Frenkie de Jong Tuesday night to draw up in the aftermath of Ajax against Juventus in the quarter-finals of the Champions League. “We are positive and Frenkie is that,” the coach said. “But it’s really just a matter of waiting. It is Saturday, only happened. We live from hour to hour, from day to day. We are willing to be a responsible risk to take. Frenkie need to be good to his body, and finally I take the decision.”
The Young showed itself Saturday midway through the first half of the duel with Excelsior as a precaution replaced. Since then, his injured hamstring intensively treated by the medical staff of Ajax. He trains Monday night in the stadium of Juventus. “But that training is not intensive,” said Ten Hag. “That is so not a real test.”
At Hag would still not say who the suspended full-Nicolás Tagliafico is going to be replaced. “Mouzraoui can play there, but Blind and Sinkgraven,” said the trainer of Ajax. Noussair Mazraoui seems to be the most obvious option for the vacant position left in the defence. The defender returns from suspension and has already more often on the left played. Joel Veltman can be trusted right position in the defense space. At Hag we need central defenders Matthijs de ligt and Daley Blind, do not disassemble.
