Ajax Amsterdam hopes midfielder Frenkie de Jong will be able to face Juventus in the quarter final in the Champions League, the second leg, said coach Erik ten Hag on Monday.
The 21-year-old went after only 22 minutes of the Dutch league match against Excelsior Rotterdam in the fight against his hamstring on Saturday, but coach Ten Hag said this was a precautionary measure.
& # 39; We will see that we can play positively, & # 39; he said. & # 39; We've taken him away for prevention, we hope he can play, but we'll see if it's possible. We will see after tonight's training. & # 39;

De Jong, who is moving to Barcelona at the end of the season, had an impressive show in last week's game in Amsterdam, ending 1-1.
& # 39; Frenkie himself will have to decide if he is ready and eventually I will decide if he will play & # 39 ;, Ten Hag added.
The coach said he was sure that his team might get upset again after eliminating holders of Real Madrid in the round of 16.
Ajax coach Ten Hag is confident that his team can get upset again in Turin on Tuesday
& # 39; I am confident in the way we play and train. We are stronger and we show it game by game, & he said.
& # 39; Juventus are the favorites, especially after the result of Amsterdam & # 39 ;, he added. & # 39; If we play well, we can overcome any limit. & # 39;
Ten Hag said he was ready for a tactical changeover by his rival Massimiliano Allegri.
& # 39; Allegri is very knowledgeable and has certainly come up with a different way to approach this game than last week, & # 39; he said. & # 39; We must improve our tactical plan. & # 39;
