Davy Klaassen thinks it’s great that understand Nick Viergever Ajax Thursday a round farther shot against Legia Warsaw. The defender made just after the peace the only hit (1-0) Europa League-duel in the Arena.

“I find it very nice for Nick and also earned. He played really fantastic. If someone should score today than he was it,” says Klaassen, who is also keeper André Onana is called as a luminary. The Kameroener held for the seventh time in a row the zero.

“Every shot he got very quiet and for peace, he came from a counter. ly due to all those clean sheets radiates a lot of confidence. Though I must say that Legia are no great opportunities, but they were certainly dangerous.”

Klaassen realised, however, that Ajax team is not very well played against Legia. “In the first half I still found, however, that we clearly were better. Only we were not. I headed home about, Hakim Ziyech got the pole. Shortly after a rest we were stronger and then we scored.”

“But in the course of the second half was heavier. We were sloppy, so we no longer came. And if that was successful, we made it to do.”

Klaassen, referring especially to the moment in injury time with less than five Players, but one defender is cutting towards the goal from Legia. The counter ended with a shot of Ziyech in the hands of the goalkeeper.

“I thought: this can’t that not go in? It was not the best. We have ourselves unnecessarily made difficult by the 2-0. But all in all, we have deserved it, I think.”

Friday there is draw in the Swiss Nyon and know Ajax who the opponent is in the eighth-finals. A nice poster for a club like Manchester United beckons, but Klaassen is hoping there is not.

“There are lesser opponents than United, and there I hope. I would like the opportunity is as large as possible in order to proceed. It will be better than today, but we can certainly still continue to come. That would not only be good for us, but for the whole Dutch football.”
