Louis van Gaal believes Ajax could have won the Champions League last season.

Asked by Helden magazine if he sees a similarity with the current Ajax squad to his that won the Champions League in 1995, “I agree. I sometimes have contact with trainer Erik ten Hag. The Football is eye-catching, but Erik still has to find the balance.

“Take last year’s Ajax that reached the semi-finals of the Champions League. With Dusan Tadic, Hakim Ziyech, David Neres, Frenkie de Jong and from the back still Daley Blind, the team actually had too many creatives. Too bad, because with that team Ajax could have won the Champions League. “

Van Gaal believes Ten Hag and Peter Bosz at Bayer Leverkusen both need to make changes if they are to win trophies, “As long as they don’t make any adjustments, I’m afraid they won’t win too much. I would be sorry, because they are trainers who have the potential to win prizes in Europe. But for the time being, the balance in their teams is still not good the moment they lose the ball. “
