Remko Pasveer reacted to Liverpool’s Champions League-winning goal on Tuesday. Ajax star makes admission over Liverpool winner amid Anfield claim
In their second Group A match, the Reds won 2-1 at Anfield on Tuesday. Mohamed Salah opened the scoring before Mohammed Kudus equalized for Ajax.
Joel Matip’s header off a Kostas Tsimikas corner completed the win. The ball just crossed the line, giving Liverpool three group points.
Pasveer didn’t think Matip’s header crossed the line until the referee pointed to his watch. The 38-year-old defended the Dutch team’s play-out-from-the-back tactics.
Pasveer was engrossed in the game when he saw Dusan head the ball away. “I don’t think so, but I couldn’t tell.
When the referee checks his watch, you know. When this happens, technology doesn’t lie.”
Pasveer continued, “We’ll struggle if we don’t play quickly from the back.” We must agree.
“We need to relieve the strain since we’re not playing well.” We scored a great goal, but it wasn’t enough.”
Pasveer denied Salah, Virgil van Dijk, and Diogo Jota. The veteran goalkeeper joked about how Ajax handled the Anfield atmosphere.
“Defensively, we were good, but we gave away several free kicks and corners. The decisive goal came from that.
“These details decide duels in top football. You strive to sharpen things then.
“Was it hard with the crowd noise? Coaching was tougher, but halftime Strepsils helped, Pasveer joked.
