As the UEFA reporter for Ajax I got to cover two incredible home performances in the quarter- and semi-finals, against Schalke and Lyon respectively, as well as the final in Stockholm.
Spent three days there, feeding various social media channels with input before, during and after the game. Visited the fan zones on the day of the match, interviewed Ajax CEO Edwin van der Sar shortly before kick-off, and witnessed the injured Zlatan threaten to get all kung-fuey when the buggy he was being transported wasn’t allowed past a security checkpoint. And, of course, reported on the match itself.
I can tell my grandchildren - who quite rightly won’t be interested in the slightest - that I was there when Wayne Rooney made his last appearance for Manchester United (his main contribution was falling on his arse a couple of times).
