Ajax boss Erik ten Hag has given his reaction after his side drew Juventus in the draw for the Champions League quarterfinals.

Ajax dumped out holders Real Madrid in the last round but Ten Hag believes Juventus will be a bigger challenge.

He told Ajax TV, “A great match for us. There are always possibilities, but it is clear that Juventus is the favorite. If we take it uninhibitedly and realistically, then there are certainly opportunities.

“You have to take a realistic approach and adopt European laws. We have taken a number of steps forward since last year, but this will be the biggest challenge yet.”

Ten Hag dismissed a view that Juventus is just Cristiano Ronaldo, “It’s not just Ronaldo. It’s a team that has already won many titles. Chiellini, Bonucci, Mandzukic, and so on. But of course Ronaldo was signed to help them get rid of the frustration of not winning the Champions League. ”
