Ajax were not outplayed by Manchester United, that’s what their coach believes, even though he admitted that his team failed to create any real chances to score.
We were not good enough, in every area. We were unable to play our own game. They were more experienced and physically stronger
Peter Bosz told RTL7 after the UEFA Europa League final in Stockholm, which his young side lost 2-0.
You know it is going to be difficult after conceding such an unlucky goal. We were unlucky to concede that early goal, because that allowed United to sit even deeper. And it got very difficult after their second goal
the Dutch coach said, referring to Paul Pogba’s lucky opener (the ball got deflected off Davinson Sanchez), and Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s clever chip that made it 2-0 early in the second half.
Bosz then went on to share his belief that Ajax could have done much-much better against this United, saying
They had everyone behind the ball and it was hard to create something. Neither team created any chances. It was not like United totally outplayed us and created chance after chance. We did not have to lose to this United.
