Ajax captain Matthijs De Ligt has admitted that he was left lost for words after his side came from behind to beat Juventus in the Champions League quarter-finals.

After a 1-1 draw in Amsterdam last week, Cristiano Ronaldo's goal looked to have put the Italians on course for the semi-finals only for goals from Donny van de Beek and De Ligt to turn the game on its head.

And the 19-year-old, who was not born when Ajax last reached the last four, was left stunned by what he and his team-mates had achieved.

"It's bizarre, not normal.I have no words for it!" he told reporters after the match.

"We have shown once again that we are very strong and that we can make it difficult for large teams.

"We have defeated Real and Juventus, two intended title candidates.We are very proud, the supporters are proud, the city is proud."

Ajax will play either Tottenham Hotspur or Manchester City in the semi-finals.
