The Is realize yet that he as a 17-year-old European final played

Matthijs de ligt realize not at all that he at such a young age is already a Europa League final to his name, already frustrated he is, however, that Ajax against Manchester United no fist could make it a 2-0 lost.

“I think I’m fine standing have held. That is nice, but I realize the not quite yet,” said The Is after the Friends Arena in Stockholm.

“Maybe that realization about a few days, as I vacation. But that will probably take some time as I am also in the pre-selection of the Dutch national team. It is wait and see what’s going to happen now.”

With his 17 years and 285 days may Is the youngest player ever in a European final. In advance he knew that that record was address. “Of course, there is inevitable for me I’m not. I read it everywhere. It is a nice statistic, and it also happens not just because we in the final have lost I attach not much value to it. A final you want to win.”

Despite the defeat against United could see the defender at times enjoy the final battle.

“I found it beautiful, for example, against someone like Marcus Rashford to play. He is young, but very fast, technically skilled, and he has a good shot. Fun to me with such a talent to be able to measure and it is a confirmation that I am on the right road. But again, I want to win.”

In retrospect, it was a stunt against United, there simply does not for Ajax, The Is. “We have in the entire game might have only one chance created. That is too little. United got a piece or three, four, and thereof make they two. That is just good.”

“Until a few minutes before the time I had also still the hope that we could get. If the 2-1 was cases, we may have the force, but that was simply not there. We were too negligent for a claim to be the cup, and Manchester center are full. There playing soccer, we simply cannot get away from.”
