Ajax coach Erik ten Hag is largely satisfied with the game of his team in the away match against Fortuna Sittard on Sunday (1-2 victory), although he thinks that the team from Amsterdam should have scored much more often.

He is also critical of Noussair Mazraoui and Antony.

"We have created a lot of opportunities. Really unprecedented", Ten Hag told ESPN afterwards in Sittard.

"But that also means that we should have ended the game much earlier.

"Dusan Tadic got three, four chances and Sébastien Haller too. And Antony two, three. They have the qualities to score and so she can blame them for not finishing the chances."

Ajax's goals were a personal hit by Fortuna Sittard striker Sebastian Polter and the winning was by Haller.

Ten Hag says that he is not worried about the fact that his team was so difficult to score.

"I'm not going to worry until we didn't create the opportunities anymore. The game is good, we liked the spaces."

'Our right side was limp'

Fortuna's goal came in the name of Mickaël Tirpan, who scored a cross from Lisandro Semedo in the 48th minute.

To Ten Hag's annoyance, Mazraoui and Antony did not intervene at that moment.

"Our right side was limp and unfocused. We pointed this out at half time and yet this happened after half time", said Ten Hag, who took both Mazraoui and Antony to the side a few minutes later.

"Those two have shown great things this season. If they are good, they cannot be stopped. But today it was just not good. A bad day, although that could happen once."

Due to the victory over Fortuna, Ajax again has three points ahead of Vitesse, which was too strong for FC Groningen (1-0) on Saturday.

PSV won 2-0 against RKC Waalwijk and has four points less than Ten Hag's team.
