After drawing 1-1 in the first leg in Holland, Ajax marched into the last four, now having upset Real Madrid and Juventus in the knockout rounds.
There are several Premier Soccer League players, legends and the media praising Ajax for their amazing progress. There's disappointment for Manchester United and praise for Lionel Messi, including Itumeleng Khune who hails the Argentina maestro as the true king.

I had a feeling it was going to be Tottenham v Ajax for a spot in the UCL final. There's often one surprising club in the final and this is where it's coming from. Spurs just need to keep it tight tomorrow and I can see them getting that away goal to finish Man City off. @AFCAjax— Ignat Football (@IgnatFootball) April 16, 2019

Everyone knows Messi drifts in from the right on to his left foot. It’s about organising your defensive block to know WHEN to press. At the same time you must be aware of wide areas. When he drifts inside the fullbacks are on the touchline allowing for a switch of play.— Young King (@RukahsUrama) April 16, 2019
Taking nothing away from the Ajax boys they are superb but Juve is poor tonight..— Mark Mayambela (@ProfMayambela12) April 16, 2019
