Ten Hag said, ”We had an off day today. I said before the game that the team that shows the most will to win would win the match and that was AZ Alkmaar today.

”We only have ourselves to blame for our defeat. We did not make it difficult enough for AZ Alkmaar.

”We did not show enough will to win today and we also lacked discipline. We must demand that from one another as that has often been our strength in the past.

”We showed a will to win against SC Heerenveen and Vitesse Arnhem in recent games and we failed to show that in Alkmaar today. I believed that we performed way under our expected level against AZ Alkmaar and we must improve.”
