Ajax’s Frank de Boer: We deserved to win the Eredivisie title
Ajax coach Frank de Boer has expressed his delight with the Amsterdam outfit’s Eredivisie success. The Godenzonen beat last year’s champions Twente 3-1 in the Amsterdam ArenA on Sunday to clinch their 30th league title.
“We fought very hard to achieve our goals. It’s simply amazing that our football philosophy has already led to such a big success,” De Boer was quoted as saying by Voetbal International.
De Boer admitted that it was not an easy game for Ajax, but added that they deserved to win.
“This match really could have gone either way. I think that we eventually deserved our win though. It was all or nothing and we struggled to hold on to our lead. We let them push us back too much in the closing stages, but that is not too strange as we have a very young team.
“Everybody in Amsterdam had been waiting for his third star for such a long time and we now finally have it. I can only give everybody a compliment.”
Ajax clinched their first Eredivisie title since 2004 with the win.
