Ajax

played against

Fortuna Sittard

in the

Eredivisie

yesterday and managed to win the game

5 - 2

.

Ajax

are now top of the league with 18 points from 7 games at the start of the season.

But the game was also important in another way for Ajax and their coach

Erik ten Hag

.

In the

82nd

game under his leadership, Ten Hag's team managed to score

250 goals

.

This is the second time in the history of the Eredivisie that a team has scored 250 goals in its first 82 games under a coach.

This record was first set by the legendary Ajax coach

Johan Cruyff

in

1987

and is now repeated by Ten Hag’s Ajax.

The most important achievement of Ten Hag, which made Ajax one of the recent powers of European football, was Ajax’s brilliant performance in

and reaching the semi-finals of the competition after eliminating several big contenders.
