Ajax midfielder Frenkie de Jong believes Video Assisted Referee decisions can “easily fall in favour of the big club”, as his side found out in Wednesday’s 2-1 defeat to Real Madrid. De Jong believes Ajax showed enough to suggest they can find a way back into the game when they visit the Santiago Bernabeu, but it was a “pity” to see the goal taken away.

“In Spain, we must play just as we did here at home”, he told NOS. “With daring and conviction. Nothing has been decided yet. Real will also feel more pressure in front of its own audience. “As a team we did well. It’s a shame that our goal was disallowed. Maybe something like that falls easily in favour of the big club, we’ve also had that. But we continued well and also had our chances afterwards. Pity that it didn’t yield a better result.”

De Jong, who will join Barcelona in the summer, got his first experience of a match against his future domestic rivals and one player in particular impressed him: “It was certainly nice to play against Luka Modric,” he told Ziggo Sport. “That motivates extra of course. He is a natural talent and it is really difficult to put him under pressure.”
