Ajax boss Alfred Schreuder disappointed over Kenneth Taylor’s celebration

Ajax boss Alfred Schreuder has criticised the way Kenneth Taylor celebrated his goal when during his side’s win against Den Bosch in the KNVB Cup, he told ESPN.

The 20-year-old midfielder doubled the Amsterdam club’s lead in the cup competition but his celebration appeared to anger the home fans as he danced in front of them.

When asked about, the head coach denied seeing it at first but was not impressed once he was shown images of the celebration.

He said: “I don’t think you should freak out the crowd when you play an away game. You just have to stay calm. Kenneth [Perez – who was in the studio covering the match] knows that Steve McClaren always said: don’t light the fire . It’s unnecessary, I think it’s unnecessary. We don’t need this, I think.”

Schreuder also spoke out about Owen Wijndal, whose first half could be better. The left back was back in the starting line-up after he was dropped to the bench against NEC on Sunday. 

He added: “In the second half he had some good runs, outside Tadic. The space was small, Den Bosch kept it compact. I thought we should get there more instead of already being there.”
