Coach Peter Bosz is proud to announce that Ajax is Thursday against Legia Warsaw (1-0 win) has placed for the eighth-finals of the Europa League, but he also finds that there is still more possible for the people of Amsterdam.

“This is a good performance, but with a place in the last sixteen, we may still not be satisfied,” said Leaf after the match at his press conference in the Arena.

“There is still more possible. On the other hand, it is beautiful and I’m proud that we Friday in the quiver to sit. I am looking forward to two great European competitions that the players also need to get better again.”

Bosz will also find that Ajax deserved it, although he realises that it’s against Legia could have been different. The Locals won by a goal just after the rest of Nick Viergever, but the Poles were also given opportunities.

“We are deservedly through, especially over two matches. But we had it to ourselves a lot easier to be able to make it through one more time to score. Certainly the last time we had huge chances on the counter. That we need better play and therefore I sat at the end is not yet quiet on the bank. It remained exciting. The goal was to both sides.”

In the second half showed Bosz him warmlopen. “If the state permitted, I wanted him in. But at 1-0 I thought it was too dangerous, because he still don’t know exactly what to expect. Neres still need to get used to our way of playing.”

Allows the vleugelspeler Sunday, however, his debut in the home match against Heracles Almelo. “He will in any case not to participate Friday at Jong Ajax against FC Eindhoven.”

“But much further, I can not on the facts referred to. It is now also still waiting to see exactly what we of Neres may expect. I have been in the first week have already seen how skilled he is. But how good he actually is, we must still find out.”
