Champions League: Super Eagles star responsible for Ajax’s defeat to Liverpool – Michael Owen
Former England striker, Michael Owen, has blamed Ajax defender Calvin Bassey for “not doing enough” as Liverpool scored late to win 2-1 in their Champions League fixture on Tuesday.
Mohamed Salah put the Reds ahead in the 17th minute of the Group A fixture, but Mohammed Kudus equalized in the 27th minute.
It seemed as if the match will end level, before Joel Matip headed in a dramatic late winner.
“Bassey is actually keeping his eye on Matip and eventually, just look through the bodies, he’s [Bassey] the closest one to him [Matip] so it was his man, so as Rio [Ferdinand] said, he [Bassey] simply doesn’t do enough.
“He lets him get a run on him and you can’t do that,” Owen told BT Sports.
