Ron Jans visited Ajax with FC Twente on Saturday evening and left the Johan Cruijff ArenA with one point. However, the coach of the club from Enschede indicates that he is not completely satisfied with this result, he says after the match in conversation with ESPN.
“There have been times when you were very happy with a 0-0 at Ajax, and now it feels like a loss of points,” said Jans. “In the first half in particular, we were unlucky with a number of chances. Our pace was very high then. In the second half we didn’t force enough.’
On the other hand, the trainer of the Tukkers wants to compliment the ten of the team from Amsterdam. ‘Ajax has, especially in the situation they are in, shown an enormous work ethic and determination. But then you have to make the 0-1. The pace of the ball was too slow for us in the second half and Ajax had just as many opportunities as we did.’
Possibility on three points
Finally, Jans is asked whether a final offensive could have done more than one point. The trainer agrees, but is also realistic. “I felt like we were a bit out of it at the end of the game. We kept a clean sheet again, but should have won today.’
