Daley Blind expressed his delight after Ajax beat Juventus to seal a spot in the Champions League semi-finals.

The former Man United star said he isn’t bothered about who they face in the next round but wouldn’t mind playing against his former team-mates [Christian Eriksen, Jan Vertonghen, Toby Alderweireld and Davinson Sanchez at Tottenham].

"I don't really care about our semi-final opponents. Of course, it would be nice if we can play against out former team-mates [Christian Eriksen, Jan Vertonghen, Toby Alderweireld and Davinson Sanchez at Tottenham], but playing against Manchester City is also a wonderful fixture," Blind told AT5.

"I'd love to watch the game with a couple of beers, but we have a tough game ahead at the weekend [against Groningen]. We're fighting for the title.

"Hopefully this all ends well so we can celebrate with a big party. Now we'll have to be careful with the beers."

Blind added: "It's fantastic to get this far in Europe with the club that I love and where I grew up.

"Everyone thought that Juventus will be a very difficult opponent, but I think we deserved it over the two games.

"It's fantastic to be part of this team and now we are in the semi-finals."

Ajax reached the last four of the competition for the first time since 1996-97 by coming from behind to beat Juve 2-1 on Tuesday.
