Former Manchester United and Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has explained the reason behind the shocking exit of Dutch club Ajax Amsterdam in the Champions League.
Mourinho talked about Ajax extensively during their Champions League clash with North London side Tottenham Hotspur via BeIN Sports.
The Portuguese tactician is without a job at the moment and he’s currently a pundit with BeIN Sports especially during Champions League football.
According to him, Ajax were not tactically flexible and that they should have adopted a defensive approach once they were two goals up at the halftime interval.
A defensive approach would have helped the Dutch club to see out the result against Spurs who rode their luck according to Jose Mourinho.
Ajax led 1-0 from the first leg courtesy a goal from midfielder Donny Van Der Beek before Matthijs De Ligt and Hakim Ziyech scored in the first half to give the Dutch Eredivisie leaders a 2-0 halftime lead and a 3-0 aggregate lead at the point.
Their opponents, Spurs had other ideas as they fought back from two goals down to win 3-2 in the second half thereby securing a spot in the Champions League final with the help of a treble from Brazilian international star Lucas Moura.
