Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham Hotspur side are due to face Manchester City in the Champions League later this evening.
Ajax’s Matthijs De Ligt has told BT Sport, during their live coverage on 16th April, that he has no preference over whether he would rather face Tottenham Hotspur or Manchester City in the semi-final of the Champions League.
Ajax made it through against Juventus with a stunning display last night, and they now await the winner of Tottenham’s tie against City this evening.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side currently hold the advantage in the fixture, after winning the first-leg 1-0.
But the centre-back insists that Ajax will have to be at their best, regardless of whether they face Tottenham or City.
He said: “No, no. I don’t have any preference. We will see who comes to the semi-final when we have to show the same as today.”
De Ligt was the hero last night as his towering header proved to be the decisive goal as Ajax beat Juve.
Ajax have been outstanding in this year’s Champions League and will pose a tough test to either Spurs or City.
De Ligt has actually been linked with a move to Spurs in Football London for £50 million, but the Dutchman may have bigger moves on offer now, with his reputation growing by the game.
