The Champions League begins to heat up now as the draws for the quarter finals and semi finals have taken place. Ajax, who boast future Barça player Frenkie de Jong in their ranks, have been rewarded for knocking out Real Madrid with a clash against Juventus. Here is what De Jong had to say after being given the chance to face Cristiano Ronaldo.

"When I was 10 or 12 years old, Cristiano Ronaldo was already one of the best players in the world.  That's why it'll be good to face him now, in a real match."

In regards to Juventus on the whole, De Jong was equally as respectful. "Juventus are one of the toughest opponents you can face. I saw their match with Atletico Madrid and they played really well. They are very attacking and have a lot of quality. I think we've got a chance."

"Juventus are favourites but so too were Real Madrid. They will be happy with the draw but if they've seen us in the Champions League they can't undervalue us."
