Chelsea-bound Ajax star Hakim Ziyech isn’t happy with the Dutch Football Federation’s decision not to award his side the title after the Eredivisie was cancelled due to the coronavirus crisis.

Ajax and AZ Alkmaar were level on points with Ajax top of the league on goal difference. Both sides had 11 games left to play.

“Come on, what nonsense I have heard?” he told Dutch outlet AD.

“We are at the top anyway. All those stories that AZ deserved more because they defeated us twice.

“So the goal difference, as it always is, doesn’t count now? Bullsh*t of course. How did PSV become champion in 2007? Exactly, on one goal.

“That we are not official champions, well. Of course, I would also have preferred to have won the title on the field, but if you have to choose one club as champion, that is Ajax to me.”
