Ajax boss Erik Ten Hag has revealed his displeasure at the outcome of the Champions League game between Chelsea and Ajax at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night.

Chelsea came back from 4-1 to draw the game 4-4, with the referee giving two red cards to the Ajax team.

Ten Hag revealed he was pleased with his side’s performance, while also bemoaning the decision of the VAR.

“Angry. Am I angry? I am more disappointed. Disappointed in the resulted. But also, proud the way we played, with 11 men but also with nine men,” Ten Hag said.

“Tonight, that is football, you have to accept it. How hard it might be. The positive thing you can take from this game is that we played great.

“But the decisions of the referee and VAR cannot be reversed. But we have been punished very harsh tonight.

“We are still top of the group. How hard it is to accept this result, we must look forward. We have all to play for and we must continue. I’m happy with the development from the team.”
