Ajax captain Matthijs de Ligt says the underdogs’ run to the Champions League semi-finals has left him speechless.

The Dutch side have beaten Real Madrid and Juventus in the knockout stages to make the last four, where they will face Tottenham or Manchester City.

“It’s bizarre. It’s not normal. I have no words for it,” the 19-year-old Netherlands defender told BT Sport.

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

De Ligt scored the decisive goal in Tuesday’s semi-final second leg at Italian giants Juventus, as Ajax secured a deserved 3-2 aggregate win and a return to the last four of Europe’s premier club competition for the first time since 1997.

“I was going a bit crazy because we couldn’t convert any of the chances. I wasn’t born the last time we reached the semis,” added De Ligt.
