In the run-up to their Champions League clash with Juventus, Bayer Leverkusen coach Peter Bosz was asked about Matthijs de Ligt.

Bosz handed De Ligt his Ajax debut three-and-a-half years ago in the KNVB Cup clash with Willem II. On Tuesday, Bosz will come up against his former player once again when Bayer Leverkusen clash with Juventus.

In his pre-game press conference, Bosz was asked about giving De Ligt his debut and said, “At that time Matthijs was still young, but at the age of seventeen he was already a top player, really great. From my first day at Ajax I was told that I had to get him to the first-team. A huge talent, there are few like him. “
