'Staying motivated is like walking on a tightrope'

Fortuna tried to put pressure on Ajax from time to time, so that the Ten Hag team sometimes opted for the long ball.

The trainer of the national champion had no problems with that.

"We want to attack variably. If the opponent is in the future, why not the long ball? That's nice with Sébastien Haller, but also the speed we have up front. It is a very effective tool," he said.

"Is it hard to stay motivated when you're so much better? No, unless you mentally allow it. Then you won't last. Compare it to walking on a tightrope. Then you fall off and it's very difficult to get out of it. to get up again."

Ajax is working on a strong series and hopes to extend that series on Saturday, when FC Groningen comes to the Johan Cruijff ArenA.

Three days later, a home match against Besiktas in the Champions League awaits.
