Ajax Amsterdam claimed their 35th Dutch championship title thanks to their 4-0 win over FC Emmen on Sunday.
With three games to go in the Eredivisie, Erik Ten Hag’s men, with 79 points, have an advantage of 14 points over their first chaser, PSV Eindhoven (65), who did not go beyond the draw this Sunday against Heerenveen ( 2-2).
Ajax achieved the double in this way, two weeks after defeating Vitesse (2-1) in the Cup final. It was their 20th title in this competition.
Last season there was no champion in the Netherlands due to the interruption in early March of the championship due to the covid-19 pandemic, despite Ajax occupying the first position.
This season, the Amsterdam team failed to make it past the group stage of the Champions League, a year and a half after reaching the semi-finals.
On Friday, Ajax announced the renewal of Ten Hag’s contract until 2023, thus putting an end to rumors that placed the manager at Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga or Tottenham in the Premier League.
