Football fan has compared Man City and Ajax's title celebrations this season


Whether you're a Manchester City or Ajax fan, there's been plenty to celebrate this season.

The Citizens started the season by defeating Chelsea 2-0 in the Community Shield, before defeating the same opponents in a penalty shootout to win the Carabao Cup in February.

Now, City are on the verge of becoming the first men's team to win the English domestic treble, having become the first club since 2009 to retain the Premier League title.

Meanwhile, Ajax have once again established themselves as one of the biggest names in European football and enjoyed a spectacular run in the Champions League this season.

They defeated both Real Madrid and Juventus during their charge to the semi-finals, only to miss out on a trip to Madrid thanks to an astonishing comeback from Tottenham Hotspur.

Success for Man City and Ajax

Nevertheless, they have still had plenty to celebrate domestically by securing the KNVB Cup and winning their first Eredivisie title in the last five years.

The two teams haven't faced one another this season, but their respective success in 2018-19 bonds them together and has drawn some interesting comparisons.

With both sides being crowned league champions, the two clubs organised events to celebrate their achievement by parading their trophy in front of fans.


Comparing title celebrations

Rival fans love to mock City for having a 'plastic' set of supporters and while that statement is rather harsh, some of their past events haven't helped to shake off that reputation.

That's especially the case with their trophy presentation at the Etihad Stadium, which went viral for some rather underwhelming chants and cheers that would barely tickle a decibel meter.

So, bearing that in mind, one football fan has compared the footage to Ajax's title celebrations and we can't quite articulate just how big of a difference there is.

Ajax put on an incredible show in Amsterdam, attracting thousands of fans with brilliant music and dancing. Check out the full comparison video down below (skip to 0:20 for the transition):

Sorry City, but the footage speaks for itself.

Fair play to all the supporters who cheered on their incredible team, but it wasn't exactly the raucous celebrations that could be seen in the Rijksmuseum Garden.

The Ajax players touching dedicated their league win Abdelhak Nouri, while Matthijs de Light gave an inspiring speech and the squad led passionate chants to the crowd.

Meanwhile, the City celebrations bizarrely devolved into an uninspiring interview with Pep Guardiola, stood on a pile of worn out confetti. 

De Graafschap v Ajax - Eredivisie

If there's any consolation, though, City could still have even more to celebrate this season, while Ajax have officially wrapped up their season of silverware.

Perhaps they'll be a little more passion outside the Etihad if Guardiola's men add the FA Cup to their collection against Watford this afternoon.
