Former Ajax and Netherlands manager Frank de Boer praised Ajax and believes they are currently among the world's top five teams.

Aside from their setback against Utrecht, the Amsterdam side has been destroying the competition this season, outscoring their opponents 48-3.

“It’s an incredibly well-balanced team. Daley Blind is used in his quality,” he began telling Ziggo Sport.

“The two central defenders are doing incredibly well, Gravenberch is, in my opinion, a great player for the future internationally.

“If you see what he does, how fast he thinks, I think that’s incredibly clever. I think Mazraoui is playing incredibly well at the moment, really international top.

“The way they play, it’s such a well-adjusted team. Ajax becomes vulnerable when they lose balls around the centre-line, but they almost always lose the ball around the sixteen. If they lose the ball, they can immediately give pressure.

“I think at the moment the five best teams are Liverpool, Manchester City, Ajax and then Chelsea and Bayern Munich. PSG I think less as a team.”
