Leaf also wants to be in the final against United’s own game playing with Ajax

Trainer Peter Bosz wants Ajax on Wednesday in the Europa League final against Manchester United the same offensive game as in earlier rounds against FC Copenhagen, Schalke 04 and Olympique Lyon.

“We are in the final come up with a certain way of playing and that is also our strength. We don’t want to suddenly do things differently in the final battle,” said Bosz Tuesday night at his press conference at the Friends Arena in Stockholm, where the final is played.

The trainer recognises that it will be difficult to create the game, because United on paper quality seems to have. “The romantic image is perhaps that we attack and they defend. Whether that is actually so depends on the strength of United.”

“The styles are in any case different, and we will see what style tomorrow is the strongest.”

United with Paul Pogba and Wayne Rooney have multiple players in the selection who earlier grand finals played. Ajax has that the player did not, and so it seems that in Amsterdam, the voltage a role to play.

“It is logical that my players nerves”, Bosz. “If they are for such a competition, no nerves to feel then they should go to the doctor. Nerves are only good, we need to ensure that not to overdo it.”

In the run-up to the finals has Bosz his preparation, therefore, as simply as possible. “We do everything the same as always. And tomorrow is my players also do the same as in the earlier matches. Then it can do so.”
