In total the four-time European champions have raised nearly 300 million euros in transfer fees from selling members of that squad that won the domestic double in 2019 as well as going so far in Europe. You can see this detailed in the below image. The Dutch managed to deliver good and quality football, which is exactly what the fans and supporters want. Angular detailing on this home shirt's iconic red stripe pays a subtle tribute to the Dutch masters who dominated international football in the late '80s. This is one of Ten Hag’s biggest successes this year as an Ajax coach. The former Southampton man netted six times in that European run and scored 16 more last season in all competitions in a campaign that was eventually cut short because of the coronavirus pandemic, with no champion crowned.
Throughout their game, Ajax committed many silly and unneeded mistakes which led to many dangerous Bayern counter-attacks. Meanwhile midfielder De Jong, now 23, was sold to Barcelona in a deal worth a total of 86 million euros that was agreed midway through the 2018-19 season. This movement created the passing lane for Tagliafico to play the vertical pass through that Tadic or even Donny Van de Beek collected and played on from. Another way Ajax attacked Bayern was by overloading the side of the ball.
