And after taking a 3-0 lead in the first half, Ajax fans ensured the Dutchman left in a raucous atmosphere as hundreds of celebratory flares played out the rest of the game under a cloud of smoke.

After winning the club’s 36th league title, Ten Hag said: “It’s been a great journey for me to get here. A beautiful era.

“The results we got and the beautiful football we played.”

The 52-year-old jumped with joy on his bench and hugged each of his players one last time at the final whistle.

He then clapped every corner of the Johan Cruyff Arena before attending the awards ceremony.

It is his fifth major trophy in five years at the club, having also won two Dutch Cups.

Full-back Nicolas Tagliafico scored the opener before Steven Berghuis completed a team change that United fans can hope to look forward to next season.

West Ham’s flop Sebastien Haller then ended the 45-minute spanking by scoring his 21st league goal of the season from the penalty spot.

With five minutes remaining, substitute Brian Brobbey snatched fourth place with his sixth goal in just ten games.

And just as the celebratory champagne was being prepared by the substitutes’ bench, Edson Alvarez scored a five after 90 minutes.

Ajax ended the season with an away game at sixth-placed Vitesse.
