For Frenkie de Jong it was his last premier league game in the Johan Cruijff Arena. The football player from Arkel, who celebrated his 22nd birthday, could not have wished for a better birthday present. "There is a very, very big chance that we can hold up that scale on Wednesday," he laughs.
Just like Ten Hag and De Ligt, De Jong praises the resilience of Ajax. "I'm still disappointed, of course. Especially when you see things back. It was a unique opportunity for Ajax to grab the treble, but unfortunately it wasn't allowed to be."
The first days after the game against Tottenham were painful. "But when we sat together at De Toekomst on Saturday, we said to each other: if we drag the title in, we can look back on a very nice season. That we can react like this, even if you find 1-0 today, is I very handsome. "
