Ten Hag sees Ajax win Eredivisie title with thumping win against Heerenveen

Erik ten Hag saw his Ajax team clinch the Eredivisie title in style with a 5-0 win against Heerenveen last night.

Ajax, who have now extended their record number of domestic league title wins to 36, move to 82 points from 33 games, four clear of second-placed PSV Eindhoven with one more round of fixtures to be played.

Strikes from Nicolas Tagliafico and Steven Berghuis, and a Sebastien Haller penalty, all inside the opening 38 minutes, sealed the victory for Ajax, before Brian Brobbey and Edson Alvarez added two more late on.

Ten Hag will leave Ajax at the end of the season for Manchester United.

It was the last home fixture for Ten Hag before he makes his move to the Premier League, having been named last month by United as their new coach from the end of the season.

Ajax finish their campaign at Vitesse Arnhem on Sunday.
