MANCHESTER UNITED fans were left drooling over “Ten Hag-ball” as Ajax scored a sumptuous one-touch goal on their way to sealing another Dutch league title.
The highly-rated Erik ten Hag will take charge at Old Trafford this summer after penning a long-term contract.

But his first focus was on topping the Eredevisie table yet again in his final home game as Ajax gaffer.
The Euro giants sealed their 36th title in style with an emphatic 5-0 victory over Heerenveen tonight.
And they got off to a terrific start when Nicolas Tagliafico fired them ahead after just 19 minutes.
But the best was to come 14 minutes later when Steven Berghuis doubled Ajax’s lead.
The Dutch outfit worked the ball towards Heerenveen’s goal with some intricate one-touch passes.
The tiki-taka style completely bamboozled the visitors.
And Ajax players lined up in the box as the ball was fired in.
However, an extra trick saw it back-heeled across the box for Berghuis to slot home.
The strike sent the Ajax fans wild.
But United fans were celebrating even more as they soaked up some classy football.
And many are hoping Ten Hag brings that same style with him to Old Trafford next season.
One declared: “So gassed for Ten Hag ball man literally can’t wait.”
Another said: “Incredible team play. This guy is a serious coach.”
One exclaimed: “Ten Hag is taking us back to the top.”
Another noted: “This Ajax team is so good with and without the ball. I really hope Ten Hag replicates this style of football at United.”
One added: “Ten Hag ball is beautiful bro.”
Ajax then made it 3-0 when Sebastien Haller fired in a penalty seven minutes before the break.
Brian Brobbey came off the bench to make it 4-0 with five minutes remaining.
And Edson Alvarez sealed Ajax’s title win in style with a 90th minute strike for 5-0.
