Wednesday night take the young Ajax against the experienced Manchester United in the final of the Europa League. “Two clubs with tradition and history, a very nice poster, also Filip Joos, who for Sporza, the match commentary will be provided. Joos eight Locals do not stand a chance: “I expect trainer Peter Bosz’s team in the finals, otherwise will play football, so with the urge to the front and high pressure. José Mourinho will for its part do everything to make it a slow match. The youngsters of Ajax are fresh and walking a lot. There lies their chance against Manchester, that one of the teams is that the least number of kilometres ran in the Premier League. Not incongruous with Michael Carrick and Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the team. In that sense, it is for Man You actually a blessing that Ibrahimovic is injured and Marcus Rashford anyway will play. If he and Jesse Lingard in the match, it is difficult for Ajax.’

“For Zlatan himself, it is very a pity,’ Joos further. “In Stockholm, in the stadium where he phenomenal omhaalgoal against England, and that against the club where he broke through. A screenwriter of the UEFA had better be able to think of. With the ‘old’ Ibrahimovic, you can’t be champion in England, as I said, for the season. He is too static. You should already be very dominant as a team to compensate for that. The choice for Zlatan this summer says something about the conservatism and the sentimental side of Mourinho. He must be careful that he is not behind it.”

For Ajax, this European final not the end. Joos: “If Ajax this team can keep everyone together, then it is the Dutch champion of next season known. I am particularly impressed by Matthijs de ligt, when I, who after the match against Lyon interviewed. A huge bear, as far as appearance is less than seventeen years. I understood immediately why Danny Blind him holder made in Orange. Mathijs de Is a top. Just as Kasper Dolberg. And I’m also always a fan of Hakim Ziyech. Ajax played last months of the most beautiful football in Europe.”
