De Boer: My Ajax players will prove equal to Man City stars

Ajax coach Frank de Boer says his players will prove their class against Champions League opponents Manchester City.

Ajax coach Frank de Boer says his players will prove their class against Champions League opponents Manchester City.

De Boer took a similar approach when his side faced Manchester United at Old Trafford in the Europa League last season and was rewarded with a 2-1 win, although his side lost the tie overall.

He said: "We showed it last year against Manchester United.

"I think this group of players have already proved they can do it and I am not worried whether they really believe it.

"I want to see players who play bravely with their own qualities and maybe better.

"That makes you a better player if you can play your best under the highest pressure. A lot of players will have that tomorrow."
