Ronald Koeman: This meeting is for Valencia is more important than for usIn anticipation of tomorrow's Champions League between Ajax and Valencia at the Amsterdam Arena, the head coach of the Dutch team Ronald Koeman gave an interview to the Spanish newspaper "Mark" that we present to Your attention.- What can You say about the match tomorrow against Valencia?- I think that this meeting is for "Valencia" is more important than for us, since we have one point more. Thus, if we manage to win, we will win a place in the quarter-finals. Valencia and Arsenal were originally among the favourites and so it is natural that they feel more pressure.- Can we say that the current success of "Ajax" is a surprise?- A little bit Yes. We don't have the class what "Valencia", especially in terms of experience of playing in the Champions League. Our team has only a couple a player who once had a chance to play in the Champions League. In this sense, we certainly surprised a lot of people.- What is the purpose of Ajax?- From the very beginning, we set a goal to show a good rivalry. The second stage has, in effect, is a surprise. Almost all said that we don't have any staff, able to fight the "Valencia" and "Arsenal". If we don't go through to the quarterfinals, then won't have any problems. But if Valencia or Arsenal will fail to win a place in the quarter-finals, then they think there will be some problems.- What do You expect from tomorrow's meeting at tactics?- Valencia are a very strong team with a strong character. Almost every player there may prejudge the outcome of the match.- Can You name the two favourites to qualify from your group, and who do you think is the favorite to win the Champions League? While I believe that Arsenal and Valencia are the two favorites. However, we also have opportunities. I don't think this year any team is unbeatable. "Maybe, "Barcelona" can be considered the main contender for victory in the Champions League?- At the moment I don't think Barcelona can win the Champions League, as this team is highly variable.- Rumor has it that in 2004 You can go to Barcelona....- I know about these rumors. I occasionally read the Spanish press. These rumors have circulated for quite a while, but I will tell You that to date there have been no serious contact. Of course, you can speculate on future plans, but first of all Barca need to get a President who would be able to identify the line management of the club..
