Ajax captain Matthijs de Ligt insists they “have no reason to fear any opponent” after knocking Juventus out of the Champions League
“It’s extraordinary. We are happy to the point that we did it thus glad for the team,” De Ligt told ViaSportFotbal
This result follows two draws against Bayern Munich in the group stage, in addition to eliminating holders, Real Madrid with a 4-1 win at the Bernabeu.
“We realize that we have a lot of specialized quality, so we don’t fear any rival. We realize we can play and, as you can see, we are great right now. We have no motivation to fear anybody.
I am not considering the semi-final, I’m simply enjoying this minute, as no one can really tell to what extent it’ll last. It was a staggering night and we need to appreciate it.
“I can’t describe how pleased I am of these players. I realized we could do it, however, the way that we did is fantastic.”
