Ajax’s shares slump after Champions League defeat


PARIS: Ajax’s shares slumped on Thursday following the shock last-minute defeat of the Dutch soccer club by Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League semi-final. Ajax shares were down 19.8 percent at 18.85 euros in early session trading, although the stock remains up by around 30 percent so far in 2019. Brazilian Lucas Moura scored a last-gasp winner late on Wednesday to complete his hat-trick, and seal a 3-2 win to send London’s Tottenham Hotspur past Ajax and into the Champions League final on away goals.
