Erik ten Hag delivers best Ajax send-off before moving to Manchester United

Erik Ten Hag delivers perfect Ajax send-off before Man Utd move

New Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag was given the best send-off by Ajax, who secured their most recent Eredivisie title in perfect style on Wednesday night.

The Dutch monsters – unbeaten in the league since February – went crazy in a 5-0 defeat of mid-table Heerenveen at the Johan Cruyff Arena, with goals from Nicolas Tagliafico, Steven Berghuis, Sebastien Haller, Brian Brobbey and Edson Alvarez on an essential night in Amsterdam.

Such an emphatic victory saw Ajax move into an unassailable four-point lead over title rivals PSV Eindhoven with only one game remaining in the 2021/22 campaign, sealing their 36th domestic title overall, second in a row and third in total under Ten Hag – sparking passionate celebrations.

They finish the Eredivisie campaign with a trip to Vitesse Arnhem on Sunday in what is sure to be an emotional occasion for Ten Hag, who will begin work at Old Trafford as the permanent successor to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this summer.
