Ajax Amsterdam's head coach Erik ten Hag
AFC Ajax are hungry for more trophy success after capturing the KNVB Beker (FA Cup) with an emphatic 4-0 win over Willem II this past weekend, according to manager Erik ten Hag.

The Amsterdam giants remain on course for a treble, with ten Hag's side leading the way in the Eredivisie due to their superior goal difference over defending champions PSV, while they are 1-0 up halfway through a Champions League semifinal against Tottenham Hotspur.

The manager insisted Ajax will not be satisfied if they do not go on to achieve more success this campaign.

"In the end, it's all about titles," he told reporters. "We have been fighting for this all year round and the first prize has now arrived. But we are not yet satisfied. It is not enough.

"This fuels hunger. Now we are going to enjoy it for 24 hours, but after that, the focus will be on Wednesday [the return game against Spurs].

"It has been far too long since Ajax had won something. We have had a great season, but we needed something tangible. We now have that, but we want more.

"We have fought hard and I was very happy to win this trophy for the fans because they had long to wait."

Ten Hag added, "This [Cup final win] was the ideal scenario, this win gives us a boost.

"It is wonderful to work with this team. They radiate so much pleasure. During the competition but also after the final when they celebrate with the supporters. I can really enjoy that."

You can see Ajax in Eredivisie action this coming weekend, with their home clash against Utrecht live on Fox Sports 1 from 14h20 CAT on Sunday.
