Ronald de Boer remembers the match very well. In his distinguished playing career he came up against Liverpool only once, but it was a special occasion. Just two months after winning the Champions League with Ajax he faced the Reds in a friendly tournament in Germany. That day Ajax showed why they were considered the world’s best. “We beat them 5-0 in a great game,” recalls De Boer. “After one minute Patrick Kluivert scored our first goal. We were at our best at the time. I think Liverpool feasted their eyes on how we played.”
The English audience was certainly impressed. “Flushed down the pan by Ajax” wrote the Liverpool Echo, to illustrate the superiority of the team that had just been crowned European Champions.
Hope the Echo can repeat The headline tomorrow
