'My manager!' - Manchester United fans send message to Erik ten Hag as Ajax win league title
Incoming Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has successfully guided Ajax to their 36th Eredivisie title following a 4-0 win over SC Heerenveen at the Johan Cruyff Arena on Wednesday evening.
The Dutch giants, who have now won three league titles under Ten Hag, entered the contest knowing that a victory would move them four points clear of PSV Eindhoven with just one game left to play. After stuttering against AZ Alkmaar on Sunday, drawing 2-2, they got the job done on Wednesday night, securing a comfortable victory, ensuring they wrapped up the title with a game to spare.
First-half goals from Nicolas Tagliafico, Steven Berghuis and Sebastian Haller put Ten Hag's troops 3-0 up at the break. Brian Brobbey added a fourth with just five minutes of normal time left on the clock to complete the victory.
The triumph has wrapped up a sixth trophy for Ajax under Ten Hag since he took charge in December 2017. He has won three Eredivisie titles, two KNVB Cups and the Johan Cruyff Shield.
Therefore, he will leave Ajax and head for Old Trafford on a high, with their latest title triumph marking a fitting ending to what has been a hugely successful marriage for club and manager. He has done an exceptional job during his time at the Amsterdam outfit and will be sorely missed by everyone connected with the club.
Unsurprisingly, however, confirmation of Ajax's latest title success has been met with a wave of messages from United supporters, who are relishing Ten Hag's arrival at Old Trafford ahead of the start of next season. He was announced as the Reds' new boss last month following several months of speculation.
Below, MEN Sport has taken a close look at what some United supporters have had to say in response to Ten Hag scooping his latest league title.
As you can see from the messages displayed in the tweets above, United's supporters have congratulated Ten Hag on leading Ajax to their latest league title success. However, they are now hoping that he can replicate that success at Old Trafford, starting next season.
