Sebastien Haller added to Ajax's Europa League squad after admin error

Ajax have confirmed striker Sebastien Haller has been added to their Europa League squad for the knockout stages.

The Eredivisie outfit announced today that the club's record signing had been left out of the 25-man squad due to an "administrative error".

Haller was not on the list of squad changes made for the latter stages of the competition, with boss Erik Ten Hag describing the issue as "unbelievably annoying".

Ten Hag said at a press conference on Thursday: "It's an administrative error. He has not been forgotten. It is indeed a thing with computers: turning a checkmark on and off. Something went wrong there. He was definitely on the list."

The 26-year-old joined the Dutch giants from West Ham in a reported £20.2million deal last month.

But Ajax confirmed his inclusion with a statement on the club's Twitter account on Friday, it read: "UEFA has informed Ajax that Sebastien Haller will definitely be available for the rest of the 2020/2021 season in the UEFA Europa League."
