Van Gaal warns Real Madrid of Ajax quality

Former Ajax coach Louis van Gaal has warned Real Madrid of their Champions League opponents.

Van Gaal is hopeful that they can go far in the competition this season.

"This Ajax side is almost as good as the one in 1995," Van Gaal said to Panenka.

"I still believe it.

"I continue to believe that they can win a Champions League again, although it's still early.

"Last October, when Ajax were going to face Bayern Munich, I said it and people laughed at me, but they have already seen the team qualify for the next round."
