At the Hag looks out to the beautiful stadium
A Trainer At the Hag, who is Ajax in the last year in the semi-finals, led to think of the four teams in group H are more or less powerful. “Last year, we did it with Bayern Munich and is a pronounced favorite, and it was AEK Athens, one of the weaker teams. It now seems that the proportions are quite right,” said Ten Hag at a press agency ANP. “Everyone will be together to win.”
If a Hag still is a favorite to be set up, then he’s home. “The intensity of the Premier League is so high. But in Spain, they can be a good football player, and Lille, ends in just a second, in a physically very, very strong league. We will have a great campaign to run if we want to stay the winter.”
“It’s an advantage that we are not far from having to travel,” said Ten Hag. “I’m counting on lots of support from our fans around the world. We also take a look at the beautiful stadiums: Mestalla, and Stamford Bridge. And Lille have a new stadium.”
