Ajax won their first league title since 2014 after a 4-1 final-day win at De Graafschap to secure a domestic double.
Lasse Schone and Nicolas Tagliafico’s efforts ensured that the title was added to their Dutch Cup win.
While Serbian international, Dusan Tadic then scored twice in an 11th consecutive league game.
However, in a bid to fight back Youssef el Jebli had briefly equalised for the hosts, whose season is not over yet – they go into the relegation play-offs to try and stay in the Eredivisie.
Ajax were again outstanding for long periods in the final appearance for midfielder Frenkie de Jong, who agreed to sign for Barcelona for £65m in January, while captain Matthijs de Ligt is one of several other brilliant young stars who are also expected to leave this summer.
It would be recalled that Erik ten Hag’s side came so close to a place in the Champions League final and needing just a point to win their 34th title.
