De Ligt said on his new boss,  ”Everybody has a new start under Erik Ten Hag with a new football vision and opinions and as a squad that can only be good for us in order to continue development in the future.

”The training is different under Erik Ten Hag with a lot of focus on tactical elements and positional play and it is really instructive.

”I believe we still have a big chance of catching PSV Eindhoven and becoming champions this season.”

The defender also stated the squad are still thinking about Abdelhak Nouri, ”As a squad we still have Appie Nouri in our thoughts. It was very difficult, especially in the beginning. We must remain professional.”
