"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 it is like to play against De Jong and Schöne? They belong to the opponent, but they are great guys. And they are great footballers too. "

Schöne gives Heerenveen coach Jansen spontaneously tips about Ajax


Lasse Schöne hopes to reach the final of the TOTO KNVB Cup with sc Heerenveen at the expense of his old club Ajax.

The midfielder is looking forward to a special meeting.

Heerenveen coach Johnny Jansen did not have to approach Schöne this week for tactical tips about Ajax.

"He already came up with that himself," Jansen told ESPN on Tuesday.

Schöne trained with Ajax for two weeks in January, before signing in Heerenveen.

"Of course I know a little more about how Ajax does certain things," said the Danish midfielder.

"But it is a team that is very good."
