Ajax trainer ’embarassed’ by narrow victory

Henk ten Cate, trainer of Amsterdam’s Ajax football club, has apologised for the team’s ‘unworthy’ performance against amateur club Kozakken Boys in the KNVB football cup.

Ajax won the match 1-2 in extra time. ‘What we witnessed is a scandal… I am deeply embarassed and I hope my players are too.’
In other cup matches Rotterdam’s Feyenoord beat FC Utrecht 3-0 and league title holders PSV Eindhoven beat the reserves of SC Heerenveen 3-0.
