Bosz reiterated that he believes his side must not use the midweek European game against FC Schalke 04 as an excuse for failing to win in Eindhoven.

He said, “I can’t say if the game against FC Schalke 04 midweek influenced the outcome of today’s game but that is possible due to the fact that we played 120 minutes just two days ago.

”I do not want to use that as an excuse, however. We were careless in ball possession today and we did not play well in the first half.

”We have character and we have proved that we can play good football and we have also demonstrated that many times this season and I have appreciated that as Ajax manager.

”We have played 18 games in Europe this season and we have not always dropped points afterwards. Players from Ajax must be able to cope with playing two games in a week.

”We want to win all our remaining games not just in the league but also in Europe. We now have a 2-week break before resuming against Lyon.”
