Matthijs de Ligt has admitted he feels less sure of himself as last season but is not worried about his form.

The defender has been criticised for his performances at Juventus so far this season and was also not at his best during the international period for Netherlands.

Speaking after the 2-1 win over Belarus on Sunday, De Ligt acknowledged his form has dipped.

He told NOS, “I also know that I am perhaps a little less confident than last year.

“A football player always has ups and downs … You can’t always go up. Last year I had a fantastic season and right now I have some things that go differently. Very normal for a young player. I don’t worry there The good matches will come naturally. “

De Ligt also acknowledged that he has so far not lost a game with Juventus or Netherlands this season despite his form, “Yes, I haven’t lost this season so far, so I can be happy with that.”
