Ajax plays Atalanta in the Champions League on Wednesday evening. For four players it’s uncertain if they can play in this all-or-nothing match. Lassina Traoré is the biggest question mark, Ten Hag stated in the press conference on Tuesday morning.
At the press conference, Ten Hag was asked about the fitness of Neres, Traoré and Mazraoui. “These are all cases of doubt. I have high hopes that Mazraoui will at least be able to play. Nico (Tagliafico, ed.) is one of them as well,” says Ten Hag, who also has good hopes for Neres. “He’ll train together with the group for a bit. Then we’ll have to wait and see how his body reacts. Traoré is will also train, but he is the biggest doubt”.
With regard to Neres’ injury, Ten Hag says that Ajax ‘knows where it is’. “Tomorrow we will play a final. That’s what everything is focused on. We still have to use him responsibly. He will be training later. Then we’ll see the reaction and then we’ll see whether he can start or not”.
