Despite his hit came Huntelaar in the first half, few in the game. He hit only nine times the ball.

“That also had a bit with the opponent”, stated Huntelaar. “They were very far back, than is the space on the sides and then you know that you will have fewer balls. The second half was slightly more the case because it was a bit more open.”

Huntelaar didn’t want to deep delve into questions about the transferbeleid of Ajax. “I think we need to focus on the sporty. Other people do that about other things, we must not do that. You have no energy losses to randzaken. We should not much talking, but concentrate on the football.”

And in the position in which we sit, it is not good that than 2-1. But well, then we have to duel again to the line drawn.”

The emperor was satisfied with Hakim Ziyech, who is the goal from Huntelaar prepared and self for a 2-0 led. “He told me last week that he wants and needs. That he has to show. Cerny had too. While I give him only this morning I told you that he is the sick Amin Younes had to be replaced.”

The emperor passed not only Dolberg. Also Lasse Schöne had from the bank to start, but he signed as a substitute for 3-1. The emperor refused of a gold exchange to speak. “No, indeed, it is often touch as Lasse in the penalty area is allowed to shoot. That is his quality.”
