The Nederlansde football association (KNVB) has moved the entire 33rd match day in the Premier league, so that Ajax can work towards the semi-finals of the Champions League. “I know that the English football association also helps us in the preparation by the competition as early as possible to take place, but the Premier League is totally different than the Dutch league.”
Tottenham should be in London full to the bak because it is not yet sure of qualification for the Champions League next season. It is an emotional game and we will all have to give, and that while Ajax more preparation time, and no risk of injury.”
Also defender Danny Rose had the rather differently, as he showed earlier this week know. “I could not believe it when I heard what people in the Netherlands had decided. In this stage of the season you feel the fatigue and then help all of the bits,” said Rose, who it would be encouraging if in England the same position it would adopt if the KNVB. “We want the Cup with the Big Ears to Tottenham, but of course also to England. It is not only Tottenham against Ajax, but it’s also about England against the Netherlands.”
