Alderweireld, Ebecilio on Ajax ambitions

AFC Ajax's first Eredivisie title in seven years secured a 2011/12 group spot. Toby Alderweireld and Lorenzo Ebecilio tell UEFA.com about the ambitions of their young squad.

After ending their seven-year wait for a 30th Eredivisie title with a dramatic final-day 3-1 defeat of FC Twente, AFC Ajax are now turning their attention to progressing past the UEFA Champions League group stage for the first time since 2005/06, knowing their place in the competition proper is already secure.

Last season, the four-time European champions finished third in their group but a win at AC Milan on Matchday 6 showed their mettle. Defender Toby Alderweireld and winger Lorenzo Ebecilio spoke to UEFA.com about building on their 2010/11 exploits, the potential of their young team and their personal ambitions.
