Ajax Release Compilation Video Featuring All 175 Goals Scored
Ajax might have missed out on the Champions League crown, but that doesn’t take away from their incredible season.
The Dutch side captured their 34th Eredivisie title and also won the KNVB Cup, as well as putting Europe’s biggest clubs on notice with their showcase of free-flowing attacking football.
Of course, behind Erik ten Hag’s success with Ajax this season was the incredible goalscoring exploits of his players, who would set the record for the most goals scored by a Dutch club in a single season.
The Eredivisie champions have now released a YouTube compilation video that showcases all of the 175 goals they scored this season.
Dušan Tadić, who proved time and time again why he was one of the most in-form players in Europe, led the goalscoring charts for Ajax, having made 56 appearances across all competitions and scoring 38 times.
Klaas-Jan Huntelaar was also firing on all cylinders, with the 35-year-old Dutch striker making 43 appearances and scoring 23 times.
The highly rated Hakim Ziyech, who has been linked with the likes of Arsenal, also contributed 21 goals in 49 appearances this season.
Meanwhile, Donny van de Beek scored 17 times in 57 appearances, David Neres found the back of the net 12 times in 50 appearances and Kasper Dolberg had 12 to his name in 38 appearances.
Even without winning the Champions League, Ajax still had an amazing season.
After all, club captain Matthijs de Ligt said during his side’s title celebrations that they had “shown everyone what we stand for and that is attacking football.”
He added: “We’ve shown everyone what the big man above us [Johan Cruyff] wanted to see and what he expected from us.
“We did it all together: experienced players, youth players, everyone. And the supporters, we want to thank you for a fantastic season.”
Ajax will no doubt be preparing to revamp their squad this summer, especially with the likes of Frenkie de Jong leaving for Barcelona, de Ligt’s future remaining uncertain and other players getting ready to exit this summer, including Ziyech.
