Ajax will complete the first match with Juventus in the quarterfinals of the Champions League onWednesday evening . Aad de Mos states that Erik ten Hag’s team has a lot of potential, as the coach sees many top talents walking around at Ajax. De Mos is full of praise for Matthijs de Ligt . “
“At the age of fifteen, everyone was convinced that De Ligt would become a world leader. Four years later he is the leader of a large club like Ajax. Hopefully Matthijs will go to Barcelona, where he can build up the same record as Gerard Piqué ”, says De Mos, who sees the greatest Dutch talent ‘at that age’ in the 21-year-old Frenkie de Jong , after Johan Cruijff.
“In form, Frenkie can destroy the whole world. Just ask France, Germany, Real Madrid …”, says De Mos. “De Jong has an unbelievable acceleration at the ball plus a great pitch. Moreover, he can run so fast and short that he immediately eliminates three players. Without him, Ajax and Orange are only half as good.”
De Mos sees a lesser player at Ajax in Joël Veltman . The analyst states that the defender may be the weak link against Juventus. “He is doing fine against clubs such as FC Emmen and Willem II, but now … Veltman makes almost every mistake and is vulnerable in the air. If I were Ten Hag, I would draft Rasmus Kristensen.
