Former Man Utd and Ipswich Town legend Arnold Muhren has shown an incredible amount of ignorance about English football after claiming that Ajax would have one foot in the semi-finals of the Champions League if they drew Tottenham in the quarter-finals.
Speaking to De Telegraaf Muhren said:
“It falls and stands with the draw.
“If, for example, Ajax gets Spurs, you will have one foot in the semi-finals. And then everything is possible.
“That they are capable of this much, they showed on Tuesday in Madrid.”
He clearly has no idea how good Tottenham are, he clearly did not watch the games against Inter, Dortmund or Barcelona and has not seen the Premier League table, he has obviously forgotten about the thrashing PSV handed to Ajax just a few weeks ago when they were humiliated 6-2.
Muhren obviously thinks that Porto would be a more difficult draw and that because Ajax stunned Real Madrid that they are now one of the best teams on the continent, even though they are not even the best team in the Netherlands.
As stupid comments go, these comments from Muhren are right up there.
