"We started well, but at a certain point we couldn't find the free people anymore", Ajax coach Erik ten Hag at

ESPN

looks

back on Sunday's match against PSV.

"That resulted in a bad match, from both sides. It is indeed a semi-final tonight, but we approach this game as a final. What is it like to play against De Jong and Schöne? They belong to the opponent, but they are great guys. And they are great footballers too, by the way. "
